Damn... that’s not good Doc.

Crashed-crashed or just the computer? Many places can plug in your drive to recover files and some can even rebuild the hard drive as long as the plates aren’t damaged or magnetized.

We went to a solid state (no plates) for our home backup (mostly old pics that we digitized as well as stuff from our phone cameras) a long time ago for that exact reason after a bad crash. Have also used Carbonite (automatic off site backup) for a few years as well. There are a few other companies that do that as well, some quite cheap if your storage demands are low.

A tech buddy thinks it might be a connector and not the drive...

Whatever that means.

So, the truth right now is other than what's posted around the internet... years of writing might be gone. I knew l needed to get it in other places, but l keep putting it off.

Best of luck and finger’s crossed it’s an easy fix Doc.

You know, if you published some of this stuff, backups wouldn’t be as big a deal! Just sayin’!

So, the drive is going to have to be sent to a specialist, so to speak. If it works, it will be expensive, however, I'll have my writing back.

That being said, I'm over my funk. I'm writing. It might be a bit, but l have an idea.

Thanks to everyone.
