    It has so far, been one of those ****** days!! :mad:
    First, I have had a 1TB hard drive go corrupt, and guess what, all my CNC stuff was on it. :cry:
    The Videos of the build I'm doing, and all my SketchUp models and drawings...Gone!
    Plus loads and loads of other stuff. :(
    I'll shoot the first person who talks about "BACKUPS"!! :zipit:
    I have 5 drives in all on my computer, and two of those are 1TB backup drives. They weren't, however, backing up the one I lost!!
    And Now!! I've just had a HiWin carriage slide off the rail and spit all of its bearings all over the floor!!! :banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead::banghead:
    I think, for safety, I'll go back to bed for the rest of the day. :rolleyes:

    Maybe the HiWin carriage was sacrificing its bearings as repair parts to revive the poor 1TB drive !? ;)

    Gray, I had this happen to me twice. Although most stuff was backed up either online or in some other form, I lost many files. I was able to get the drive to work long enough to recover the important ones by freezing the hard drive overnight. It may be worth a shot.

    Or I would put a recovery program on the job :(

    I've been meaning to look into a RAID set up. What it does is allow you to either distribute files throughout two drives, or create a mirror that is a direct active copy of the main. You'd pretty much be running a three drive setup, SSD boot drive, HDD data, HDD active copy. That isn't anything conplicated, you just need support for it on on your motherboard.
