hey everyone. Just typing from an over one decade old desktop pc i just booted back up for the first time in years.
Reason: My laptop experienced critical harddrive failure this morning and is unable to even locate its own operating system.
Today i will attempt to recover as much data as i can from the damaged harddrive.
For purposes of chatting i am currently unable to use skype (since this is a linux based system and i have yet to find download a linux based version of skype). However i will keep my picarto stream site opened to use the chat there to talk to you guys.
Time to do some data rescuing.
turned out that the harddrive is most likely mechanically damaged. Any attempt to mount it failed.
Considering the only REALLY important files were a hand full WIP files, as painful as it is, professional recovery of those wont pay off.
Ill have to get a new laptop and redo the pictures.
