Hard Drive Failures, Old Emails

Monday, May 31st, 2010

On Friday, I had a small disaster. ¬†My iMac’s hard drive failed. ¬†I don’t know what happened exactly, but I’m assuming it’s some kind of hardware failure. ¬†While I have backups, I haven’t gotten around to actually setting them up since I moved the computer from one room to another. ¬†Fortunately, I was able to recover 100% of my data, so life is good. ¬†While I was thinking about it, though, I realized that I have three old hard drives that I haven’t really looked at in a while. ¬†Two of them turned out to be dead. ¬†The last one, however, contains files from 2002-2006–and also contains emails back from 1997… ¬†So I spent part of the night look through them–and it brought back some fun nostalgia.
