Stuff I do

July 2007 - Posts

Don't you just hate data loss?

I do.  I was doing too much multitasking within too short a time period over the weekend and between cooking shish kebabs on the grill, digging a hole for a new mailbox post, working on testing a new video card, talking to my wife, and then having my daughter sitting on my lap while I worked on my computer was just too much.  I ended up not fully paying attention to the prompts in my RAID array configuration on my home workstation and made a 3 second mistake that ended up wiping the config on my data drive array.

I do have a recent backup, but it wasn't all inclusive and there is some stuff I want back.

I have found a company who says this is a pretty straight forward retrieval since everything is in working order, just minus the config details.  They say they might be able to do it for a bit more than $1000.  I'm wondering though, can some of the community members chime in and make recommendations on who you would trust to do a recovery ... and for a fair price.  Another company said they would start at $6000 to get my data saved to a new drive.  That's way too rich for me.

Oh...Rod, that project I'm working on....I know I said I'd have something mid July, but......
