Hard Drive Death

So you know how I bought this computer a couple years ago? It was all bad ass and stuff? Well, the hard drive died. Fortunately, I was able to con a techy friend into saving all of my important documents and financial information photos so this blog could keep on truckin' without missing a beat.

What is hysterical is how the grinding and clicking noises the computer emitted from day one was probably because of a faulty hard drive. I didn't know better and thought it was normal. What the hell? It was brand new!

time spent recovering data: 8 hours
cost of replacement hard drive: $85
time spent uploading OS and programs: 12 hours
time spent transferring select data to new hard drive: 2 hours

Ugh! Back up your shit, and do it often!!!
