It finally happened...

My computer crashed. I have so far lost: all of my e-mail contacts including my accountant who isn't local, 3 years of checkbook entries in software, over 100 books and 500 movies I had entered in software data programs (that was just the start, I wasn't even near done), all of my software has to be redownloaded, etc. I did save stuff on an external hard drive but I didn't save the data part to some things. Like I had a Collectors shortcut, just not the data. All that hard work is gone. I did save pictures and stuff like that, some files, etc but everything has to be started over. I got one of the little PC towers that is super cute but I'd take my old PC back if it meant I didn't have to redo everything. :( Not to mention I didn't exactly have the money to go buy a new PC right this very moment but things happen. I do have backup discs coming for my old one so if that works I can at least get some data off of that computer including my contacts. It's 3:30 am and this is all I have been doing all night including poor R who worked hard all day and helped with this all night.

OMG! Disaster! The same thing happened to me last summer. I blew up the motherboard. From now I on I save files on my online warehouse in comcast and pictures all go in photobucket and smug mug.

Can they ghost your old hardrive and reload it on the new one? You probably are going from XP to Vista right?

I have no idea. It's probably all gone but yes, going from XP to Vista.
