Sadly the bad news is that at the weekend my precious hard drive died. Unexpecdedly it died and after taking to a repair shop it is literally brain dead, the work is still there but it needs to be recovered by a data specialist....It literally had the past 3 years of my life on...music....pictures...first and second year work....everything. Thank god third year work was saved on my laptop and usb stick.
I have never felt so destroyed or sick with myself, so I warn all of you
BACK YOUR WORK UP SEVERAL TIMES...PLEASE.
The good news.... I bought a Mac, and it will arrive to me on the 6th January.
Money well spent!
