on Data recovery

Last Thursday my Windows crashed due to unknown reason and when I reinstalled the operating system, I unknowingly chose to partition my C disk which contained most of my precious data.

For those of you who are unaware, I have been offline since last Friday as I handed my CPU to a technician to have its data recovered. This blog seems to be updated daily since I have deliberately put it on to an autopilot mode (thanks to Blogger for this feature!)

I was deeply shocked as the C contained a lot of my data. Moreover, I did not know which data were lost.

I was a bit relieved to find out that all my snapshots (yes, especially those narcissistic ones) are kept in D which was left intact. Most of my MP3 collection were kept in that same disk, thank goodness.

Most of my ".exe" softwares are kept in E disk which also turned out to be 100% OK.

So on the next day I went to a computer technician and asked the guy to have the data recovered. I did not expect full recovery as I knew it was impossible. To have 25% of my data recovered would be a grateful thing enough to me.

I paid Rp50,000 after having around 60% of my data recovered.

Then, I find out that the data I had in C are:

* Downloaded pictures from online = 10% recovered.
* Downloaded videos from online = 10% recovered.
* Downloaded songs from online = 80% recovered.
* Poem collection = 0% recovered.
* Yahoo and MSN chat logs = 0% recovered
* Novel and short stories collection = 100% recovered.

I lost most of my downloaded pictures and videos but never mind, I could always download them again anyway!

Seeing that none of my poem collection could be recovered, you must have thought that I was in an utter despair.

But nah, You're wrong!


I just thank God that I was born a narcissistic person that I had printed my ENTIRE poem collection as soon as I wrote them.

In the end, my only disappointment was to lose all my Yahoo and MSN chat logs which could never be recovered again...

@Ksatrio: i think west africa is a bit too far from Indonesia, can't u find any computer technician in your continent there? :)

@qiongye: u don't need to turn on anything. just publish the blog with a future date and it will automatically position itself on an autopilot mode..

but that autopilot mode will only generate one post on that one particular day rite? is it possible to say like automatically post like one post every other day?

toshi  – (27 August 2008 at 13:11)  

u can freely post any autopilot posts on any days as many as possible, dude.

just modify the time-date settings, it's that simple.
