Crash, boom, bang
Published: Saturday 2010-09-25.
The old hard disk of my home computer seems to be completely bored. It seems to be doing fine, until I tried to reboot it yesterday, when it started failing. Now I have bought myself a new one, but when I tried to copy files over from the old one the computer hangs, and when I try booting from the old disk (something that partly worked yesterday), I get “Read Error” already in Grub.
Oh well. I have backups of most of my information, and my movie projects are on a loose USB disk, so I have not lost too much data. My photo album is on the other computer (the backup was on this one) and my music collection I believe I have a copy of somewhere else. Some downloaded files I never did do backups of are gone, but I can probably survive without them. It is just so much work having to re-install everything…
