> Recover chk files:
Found that website too. Wasn't able to do anything with it
at the time so I said I'd do more about it today BUT read on....
> but remains silent on how you might do this.
I laughed out loud when I read that help file. The word useless
comes to mind.
I'll have a look at that "chain" stuff your talking about. It
won't kill me anyways.
I had some films on cds and because my cdrom/dvdrom is
acting up (another ordeal altogether) I decided to skip along
to my friends place and borrow the use of his computer for
a few hours.
SO I made my harddrive slave to the 3gig Win98 harddrive and
boot up. Innocent me thought that things couldn't possible
get any worse, how wrong was I. I Viewed the contents of the
harddrive and I no longer had my what used to be 6 folders. I
have alot of files that are named odd things like ???.*&! Also
the last modified date on some of the files are twenty years
ago. Checked the harddrive later on when at home under linux
and they were still there. I think that's about the time I
started to shed a tear. (I'm kidding)
At least now I don't have to worry about the .chk files or do
I, tune in next week folks. :-)
My boyfriend had to deal with a similar data loss not so very
long ago. His problem was more along the lines of the click of
death version though. His harddrive was an IBMDeskStar (or
DeathStar as it is fondly known as) aswell. He was able to
recover some of his files with the use of a freezer and a
program called GetDataBack. I'm thinking I'll be following the
same recipe. I'll hopefully be able to get some of my files back
and then it'll be a nice quick death to the harddrive by hammer
