  • Doomed as doomed can be

    Hard drive, used as back up, of course, crashed & burned, lost all my routines, source code, error handling traps sorter routines, printer routines, menu routines, yep, everything gone in a puff of smoke. Anyone kind enough to send me a bunch of replacement routines to keep me from doing all this over again?
    Certainly would be appreciative and would talk nicely about you all over the nets!!!

    Thanks in advance.

      Lee, when you say "crashed and burn" do you mean in the physical
      sense? If the drives logic card/motor controller was burned out, then perhaps
      purchasing the same drive, and replacing the board.

        And you wonder why "they" recommend multiple, cyclic backups with at least one copy off-site.

        (Yes, I do).

          Remember what our mothers used to say, "A backup per day keeps the doctor away" ..

          Or was it an apple? Anyways - is it completely dead? I have managed to
          kick-start (literally) supposedly dead hardrives by banging on them at
          upstart. Once had a drive that stopped working completely - ripped it
          out, placed it on the side and tapped on it during upstart - voila, it
          started with a bunch of burps and I could begin saving as much as I needed
          from it before it went into the trash bin.

            When I had a critical hard drive fail I used this, and it worked perfectly. There are a number of other products out there, but this is the only one that worked for me. Well worth the small investment.

              I can't make any guarantees, but I have successfully tried
              putting the drive in your freezer overnight. There is a good chance
              that you can do a one-time copy to a new drive when it still cold.

              This is a last resort technique but has been used many times.
              Here are a few links. http://www.meetmyattorney.com/slink/...es/000275.html http://forums.anandtech.com/messagev...&enterthread=y http://www.resellerratings.com/forum/t111075.html

              Again, do this at your own risk! There are also professional
              file recovery companies.

                Would like to thank all of you for responding. The issue isn't hard drive recovery, which so many of you believe, it's programming resources rebuilding.

                As I'd stated, am looking to replace lost routines. If you have anything which might assist, other than finger wagging, etc., then please contact me.

                Currently am looking for a complete Ascii chart including f keys, etc.

                Also looking for a routine for line input, moving back and forth, replacing strokes, using arrow keys, etc.

                Any help you could lend would be greatly appreciated.

                If you simply which to harp on the need for back ups, please don't waste your breath, fires happen and your comments aren't constructive.

                    Sorry ..

                    But no matter how I try to nicely print out a chart here, the format
                    operation on this BBS garbages up the white spacing ..

                    gloom.

                    At least my intentions were good.

                    If you send me an Email I'll send you back a nice PLAIN TEXT Email
                    that darned sure will keep the column spacing. But please, grin,
                    send it plain text so the HTML pocket knife on my Email doesn't gut
                    your request on first inspection .. chuckle!

                      Mike,
                      garbages up the white spacing
                      Code:
                      Try with code tags, which result in monospaced chars.

                          Thanks for the speedy assistance.

                          Am working on quite a few routines. Anyone got a routine to build menues?
