Just a little public service announcement. My old computer's hard drive is failing and does not allow me to make more back-ups than the ones I have from a few weeks ago. As a result of this I am unable to do photo editing and making the collages of plush photos. :/ So until the new computer gets here (which hopefully is late next week, or early in the week after that) I won't be uploading any new submissions. I have tons of photos to go through but it just isn't working right now ^^; My old computer held out for a long time, but it is time for something better and faster. Fortunately I saw this coming for a while so I'm not overly worried about the financial side of things! If anything, it makes me want to make even more plushies for the upcoming conventions and Etsy and do more commissions! :la: Gotta say though, in the beginning of 2017 I knew next to nothing about computers and their hardware. I have learned a lot these past few weeks! I hope this one survives till I can make the switch, I have no idea how long hard drive discs can last once their S.M.A.R.T. status/tests indicate they are failing and have almost 400 errors and multiple bad sectors ^^; but it's not a comfortable thought in any case.

Thanks, fortunately not too much trouble (am I glad I got my new back-up drive in time!) though I was very stressed out when I got that test result D:

I actually never reached a bad S.M.A.R.T status; the rare time the hard drive failed was instant

This is my first time, too! But I've had this computer for 6 years now and never switched out any of the hardware, so I did expect to loose it this year due to old age. I am glad it didn't have an instant failure as my back-up drive failed a few weeks prior, and I would have been in serious trouble had I not had time to make new back-ups on a new drive! D: Did you get that infamous 'click of death' or did it just not turn on anymore?

On the two failures I experienced, I got the click of death on one. The other one simply died out.
May their souls rest in peace

I have a NAS with two HDD inside (they're basically a copy of each other) where I make my backup each week actually. I'm never moving the NAS to minimize at maximum the risk of a mechanical failure. I turn it on each week, make my backup and turn it off right after.

Also you might want to use an online solution of backup for your most important files, especially if your hard drive is bound to fail soon!
