D'OH!!

If you want to get started again I could send you a .ZIP of my own schematics, which I suppose I should also start a few more discussions about here since there's so much that hasn't been seen by eyes other than my own..

For any one that also wants to know. I collect for my hobby and for reference. i collect all pictures and stuff for idea's also. i've been doing it for many years and well i just lost it all.. most of all i miss all peter Daniel's photos that i kept and others too..


So if any one wants to share there schematics please email them to me or ask me for another way...

If i had a dvd-r-w i would have backed it up long time ago. since it was a big folder.

Jason, take a look at this brilliant piece of software: http://www.runtime.org/ GetDataBack for FAT or NTFS.
There's a good chance that you can retrieve a lot of your stuff with this tool. Good luck and keep us informed. Meanwhile, try to read and write as less as possible on your drive.

Yeah, how exactly did you lose the data?

Did you format the drive? Delete the folder? Install an OS on top of it?

Whats up?

Even if you did an unconditional format, it doesn't wipe the data, It's possible to get a lot of it back. Did the drive die?, even if that happened there are companies that will recue your data for a fee.

Regards,

Tony.
