The other day one of my external hard drives went bad and I lost a lot of data. I knew the drive was janky so I only had superfluous data on it, but it’s still a hassle. It had my ripped dvds that I put in my iPod for travel and the iPod has a bad habit of checking to see if the files are still connected to your system every so often, and if it doesn’t find them it deletes them from your iPod like it or not. First world problem, I know, but there we are. I don’t have access at all times to the soothing sound of Bob Ross’s voice, and that’s a damn shame. All my classic Doctor Who is also lost to me. Unless I find some way to temporarily get the thing working again. I haven’t set about the task of finding out if such a thing is possible, but it’s on the list.
