Unfortunately I've just lost my 160GB drive with a lot (all but 9) of my Smiths gigs on. I'm not sure if the loss is total but the drive is clicking and incredibly hot. I'm letting it cool down for a couple of hours and I'll try re-running it, but I have my doubts :(
If it is gone I'll be a busy man downloading Smiths music again

I'll stick a couple of DVD-Roms in the post for you if you like. Might be quicker than a big download.

Thanks for that offer but I'll wait and see what happens with the drive, I may be able to salvage something :wink:

Well I let it cool down for a couple of hours and I've managed to view 29 concerts. I'm going to keep it off overnight and hopefully get all the concerts, there's only 3 missing :)

Hi Flea,
Really sorry about that.
Be carefull when you start saving your stuff, I lost a larger one too some months ago, and the only way to transfer my stuff to other HD is putting the HD in my frost for some hours and transfer files for half an hour, them putting in the frost again, these way I able to save more than 90% of my stuff.
I do the frost after insane searching for a solution in the web, sometimes can be done sometimes not.
I hope you get everything without much trouble
