I also have a...vested interest...in seeing this comic continue.  Best of luck to you in your data recovery endeavors.

Quebec region. :) That said, up to now, no way to recover the lost data unless I put my partition in jeopardy. Yay. However, I still got the last 2 comic's SVGs, so I should be able to continue without too much problems.

Re: When you are bored...
Well, after data recovery, I've recovered a lot of stuff, but I cannot recover vector drawings, so I lost all this year's comics.

What does it mean? Well, I'll have to re-do the canevas, and I'll take this opportunity to do some tests'n'tweaks to the comic.

And since it's been a while since I've done any, the creative juice should have regenerated.

Nooooooo! Aww that sucks. Well at least you didn't lose all of the comic. :)

Re: When you are bored...
Bummer. That's what backup drives are for. (Partitions are okay, but reconstructing the disk is annoying and I'm never sure about something getting into the partition or surviving the purge)

It's always best to look it up. I find being uncertain and playing around on the computer with important stuff is bad.

I don't know if your PC is new enough, but RAID 1 is always a good idea. (dual mirror drives)

If you have an ATA HDD, you can get this, but if you have SATA your motherboard probably has RAID anyway.

He'd need 2 HDDs unless it works under different partitions on one HDD, but yeah.

No, he needs 2. The whole point of RAID1 is to have a backup HDD when one fails. If the info is on a separate partition, it's still lost with the failed HDD.

Have you had any luck with recovering any data off of your partitions?

perhaps too late, but I use GRC SpinRite 6... $80, but works quite well.  =]  I've used it successfully several times.

No comic data was recovered from the disaster, unfortunately. I only have one or two SVGs to start it again - and I didn't have much time to do it lately.

Ouch, ah well. Nothing like a new start to come up with different ideas.

Bleck.. do you still have the old Hard Disk around?  If so, let me know... I'll let you use my software on it.
