Gah... Backup Backup Backup

Well, I messed up. With the arrival of fall/winter here in Wyoming, I planned to re-overclock my computer. In the process of doing so, my Windows install got corrupted, and couldn't be recovered. That in itself isn't that big of a deal, just do a fresh install.

 

Well, while going to quickly to re-install Windows, I accidentally reformatted my storage drive and erased all of my pictures, ripped music, games, and game saves...

 

Just a word of warning to everyone (something you all probably know already):

 

BACKUP ANYTHING IMPORTANT BEFORE OVERCLOCKING!!!

Awesome. It looks like one of the links had a program that will recover it.

 

It looks like Handy Recovery will recover my files. I just need to purchase a license for it. The trial version (1 file recovered per day for 30 days) has already recovered one of my photos. Everything else on the disk was replacable, just time consuming, but the photos were the only copies I had of them. First thing I'm going to do when I get them recovered is burn to disc.

 

Thanks for the help.
