Funny incident with The Machine
« on: February 18, 2004, 06:51:20 pm »
I just lost all my Machinae videosin my HD! I had it, then lost it. What do I learn from this? Gotta download Machinae to different locations and always back-up files in case that drive partition F should spontaneously decide to delete all files within. All right - it was not drive F but apparently a) virus b) my av-software jammed to America's Army 2.0 zip file (which was also in drive F ) after which F drive was empty - malfunction in av-software?

In any case there was and still is no viruses in my computer - I've done recheck with latest updates (also, my OS is always updated) so... Well, it's mystery like no other.

Lost all my saved games situations and some downloaded freeware plus videos so there really was no damage. Quite disturbing and annoying nonethless.

/Gravehill , lost points and F drives.

My tummy feels funny.

Yea that is the worst especially when you haven't backed up in ages. Like the state my computer is in now, I cbf burning CDs and copying through the LAN takes too long.

I hope you can find you stuff again.

Yeah. I was lucky. All the stuff I had there I can get back. But sometimes it seems quite funny that you know that what happened is due program malfunction and still you don't know what program and how.

Thanks for cheering me up guys. Irony is that I was joking for someone here somedays ago how he should get multiple copies of Machinae stuff 'cause it's so fast it have tendency to disappear. And now I lost all my Machinae videos that I have not copies of. Really, world is full of twisted kind of humour!
