Anyone remember me mentioning it being messed up and seeking ideas on how to recover data?

Well, I am working again (making darn good money too).

I took it to a pro.

He tried various things over a five day period before pronouncing it dead.

So all the work me and sistersinister had done is gone.

So the two expansions I was working on?

Not sure they will be anytime soon, might not even happen.

Sad to hear that. I've had a lot of drives fail over the years but have been able to recover the majority of the data in most cases, short of anything a fire or sledgehammer could do. Usually I just jerryrig it as an external drive, repair or at least mark any bad sectors and pull off any remaining data I want. But if a pro spent five days on it and couldn't manage any of that, it must be physically fubared :(.

Yep.

I finally got around to unpinning the progres report.

Not sure if I will ever get around to re-starting this project.

Many hours of squinting and hand cramps from myself anf sistersinister.

All lost forever.

What a loss. I'm not doubting the expertise of whoever you had look at it, but did you exhaust every possibility? This thread has a lot of hard drive recovery tricks.

As the change of the topic title now suggests (and the two releases), looks like we are back in buisness.

Good to hear that. FYI, we are making good progress on the boot shop... not sure if you have access to the workroom, but you should.

Thanks for the constant support. Mopst was lost, but finding some of what we had done motivated me (and her) enough to start again.

As for the workroom, if I was sent the password, I have forgotten it.

It is good news this has not been abandoned forever.
If I were better with image programs, I might have created some goth/visual kei versions of at least some of the original npcs. It is still on my to-learn list. Freaky? Oh yes.
