this is what happens when you don't back up your data

I noticed today that one of the hard drives I just replaced (connected via USB caddy) wasn't working. So I popped out the drive and took a look. This is what I found.

Uh-oh. A burn mark. Not good. Not good at all.

Hang on, it gets better. I took a look at the hard drive.

Above is the back of the hard drive. Burnt chip. This drive is literally fried.

I tried moving the plates from one IDE to another but that didn't work. It appears the plates are FUBAR as well.

This sucks.

I lost all my MP3's, a crapload of video material, a TON of photos..

Bleah.

And to think, I was going to transfer the data from there to my new drive before the end of this week.
