So my hard drive failed on Sunday . Im basically on hiatus till it's fixed. Potentially lost a lot of art. The tablet takes years to load DeviantArt so I really won't be getting on with it. Took me 45 minutes just to do my watering on Wednesday. Hope to get my PC up and running soon. I have NOT left just hard to get online

This is so random and I'm am so sorry about that, but what was the type of hard drive that crashed, if I may ask :0?
If it's a disk drive, I'd recommend switching over to a solid state drive~ They're a lot less prone to crashing than their disk counterparts, but are a little more expensive for this reason.
i'm a computer major sorry for my tech nonsense i can't help it xD

Sorry to hear about this crash as well, I know how heartbreaking it feels to lose all your work ^^. Happened to me some years ago and I'm still reeling some days over the stuff I lost xD

haha i know this was a while ago, but i really didnt get on da without my pc XD

It was actually a solid state drive, i was so heartbroken. I honestly can't believe it but my roommates cat stepping on the outlet strip on/off button really fast ACTUALLY DID IT IN.

Lesson learned: outlet strips are not for pc plugs ;;

I ended up buying a new solid state drive ;; was cheaper than data recovery by a long mile
just gonna hang onto this hunk of plastic till someday i can get my stuff back maybe TT_TT 
NOW I KNOW THE PAIN.

Oh wow, I honestly would not peg that as the reason it crashed xD!! Maybe it just couldn't take the bursts of electricity at such a fast rate, idk
I admit I'm laughing a little because it was the cat x3 They need to keep their paws away from buttons haha!

And yes that's a good idea to hold onto it ^^. From my experience, anything can be recovered from a hard disc/solid state drive--it just takes a lot of time and effort~
Probably more than I would ever like to do haha xD!
I wish you the best of luck regardless in getting your stuff back ^^! One day I'm sure you'll have it again~!

Oh no, that sucks!
I hope you didn’t lose anything, or that you manage to retrieve whatever’s lost when fixing the harddrive! (although I realize that might be a bit optimistic of me, but fingers crossed!) <3

Oh no!That's terrible!
It's kind of sad that it's almost always cheaper to buy new rather than repair what you already have, I've been in that position too, only not with a hard drive... I hope you don't take your loss to hard! *hugs*
