It is a quick update that my main HardDisk (SeaGate 500 GB SATA HDD) just crashed after I installed my new graphic card(nVidia GeForce 8400 GS) in the my PC. The MFT(Master File Table) on the Data Partition has been corrupted so windows can not read or write to the disk. This happened after I had to hard reset the system after a random freeze. Apart from some random crashes(thanks to windows) my system is quite stable. 🙂
Now, the MFT is corrupt, and all most of my data is inaccessible. Due to the busy schedule and some over confidence on my faithful system I took the last backup 5 months ago. I was planning to take the backup of important files to my laptop, but now it is too late. Now, my only hope is to recover the data using some partition recovery tools. I would post the update on this matter as I recover my files back.
Thanks to Online data backup services like Mozy.com and Google Notebook and Google Docs etc. I am at-least able to access some of my most important data.
I am sure in a day or two I’ll be able to get back some of my data from that evil hard disk. And would definitely start regularly backing up important data. Also, I’ve to change my current PSU(Power Supply Unit) to some high end SMPS. It seems like it can no longer efficiently handle huge power requirements of my regularly updated hardware configuration.
