Yes, that Seagate thingy is your hard drive. Whatever you do, don't try to open the drive to get at the disc!!!!

Disconnect carefully, wrap in bubble wrap and sturdy packaging before you post it.

Good luck with the recovery.

(The disc inside is a magnetic recording device, ie not at all related to CDs - optical recording wotsits)


hello eddie,

just got online now, at 1pm my time.

what felix said. that is your harddrive,
recovery of your data is very easy, 1 simple cable into their pc, then save your stuff onto a portable drive and send it back to you,
i have a cable here that could do it for you. I love you




felix, how i have missed calling you that...... I love you

looking back, don't try to open the case eddie.
that is where all of the data is and unless you know what you are doing, you will corrupt it all.

good luck with the new pc, it is good that you were able to have office and norton included

Felix and Tats

Many thanks. I love you I love you

I had indeed considered opening up the box-like thingy, but luckily no screwdriver in my tool kit has a head matching the tiny star-shaped screw-heads on the outer plate- so I didn't.

I'm not at all sure that I disconnected it "carefully", felix- imagine a half-pissed Morlock wearing boxing gloves- but I did manage to think of the bubble-wrap envelope.

I'll get it in the post this morning, and keep you posted on developments on the data retrieval front.

Thanks again, ATU pals.

Sounds like a ghastly business. A domestic dispute of some kind? scratch

Was it bubble-wrapped?

No, not a domestic dispute, he is married and currently has another two women on the side. I think he was embarrassed about the amount of porn that could be found on it Shocked

Ha ha. With the aid of "specialised tools" my ex has managed to retrieve the lost data from my "badly corrupted" hard drive and is posting me a CD with all my lost files on it. cheers

I'm sending her an Xmas cheque.

The CD arrived in the post today, four days late due to the Xmas rush. But better later than never. All the old files for my LU book are now safely installed on the hard drive of my new computer. cheers

Coincidence - I was on the road this morning and started to wonder if you got the data out of the old computer.

Great news! Bravo for the ex!
