- ARG! Ive killed again.
Jon, what sort of drive is it and is it spinning up at all?
If you’ve been lucky you might just have fried the case and not the drive inside. They’re usually standard SATA/IDE drives inside once you take a screwdriver to it and the data can be recovered just by bunging it in another PC. I can have a look if you like?

Its getting beyond a joke now. Last year i killed the drive with the last 5 years of my photos and portfolio on. Then last week my laptop expired and then last night i barely touched another 500gb external drive in the process of adverting a tea-tastrophy. What happens instant drive death – it wasnt even writting to the damn thing at the time either. FFS.
I now have one dying DSLR, one defunct laptop and two dead external drives and not a single photo to show for 5 or 6 years of photograpghy.
The bitter kick is that both times i have lost drives is been on the cusp of either selling work or being ask to do more work/exhibt my photos.
I think its time to accept that im not intended to be a photograpgher.

If it makes you feel any better mate you are not the only one in this predicamant, My gf is in her 2nd year of a photography course and both her external drives went tits-up within a week, luckily i had put everything onto DVD the day before so a lot was saved but its amazing how when things go wrong they REALLY go wrong. I feel for u bud, stick with itPosted 8 years ago
Theres isnt going to be a third time. Im just going to sell my DSLR when it comes back from repair. Ive lost 300k+ photos now, plus the missing backups which we dont talk about.
Cheers for the offer RB, i’d settle for a double bourbon, a ciggy, a nice sunny wall to lean againt an 7.62mm of copper jacket lead to be honest.Posted 8 years ago
