Hi barney here. If anyone cares, 2 days ago, my C hard drive failed. I could not get into my computer at all. I had to format my hard drive and reinstall windows. I lost everything. Over 200 gigabytes. I am seriosly pissed off right now but at the same time thankful that it wasnt more serious. So i will not be on for a while until i get sorted out and reinstall all of the programs i lost. This is depressing for me. ?:cry:

Sorry to hear,chin up. It does give rise to the Question if you can afford a sec hard drive do it.
This can be an advantage {storeing game files and important info} If the main hard drive fails.
Less to download again.

DARK :twisted:

This is the very reason I bought a media drive so I can back up all my programs music games and programs, in case of a HD or OS failure. Maybe you should look into getting one before this happens again.

Gigs are cheap dude, so I'd suggest getting a larger one. In the future you may have more "important files". You'll be surprised how fast that 100G will fill up.
