**** this ****ing ****

So last week we moved. When I tried to hook up the computer it was totally screwed up. It would even start XP. So we took it to have it fixed. The guy makes the diagnosis as a faulty hard drive, ane he completely replaces it with a hard drive with half the space. On top of that, I don't think he even tried to save our old hard drive. I lost probably 500+ pictures of family vacations, unforgetable parties, bike shows, and other stuff (I'm just really glad I had my 3,000 Mp3s on my portable hard drive).

So then he charged us $250. Does that even sound reasonable. He was supposed to be a good friend of my Dad's fiance. It sounds like they got ripped off. I'm so pissed right now.

hes ripped you off like a super model waxing off the southern jungles fo womanhood... dunno about stateside but ehre in the uk i can buy a 120gb hd for 50 ($90-$100), plus all you need to do is disconnect your old hd, set the jumpers on the new one as the primary plug it in then link your old one up as a secondary drive then install windows on the new one and then whens its running see fi you could pull the files form your old drive

Do you still have your old hard drive? If you want to send it to me, I could attempt some data recovery. I've got actual professional experience in this area, and of course I'll send you the drive back.

Just offering because you got screwed by the repair shop. They're quite good at doing that to people.

That sounds awesome. My Dad's fiance was supposed to talk to the guy today and see if he could do anything. Supposedly she still has the hard drive. If nothing here works out, maybe we could make a deal.

Ok, just let me know whenever you work things out with her. I'd just want you to pay for the shipping of the drive and whatever media you choose to use for me to transfer any files I manage to save back to you.

No promises on what I can save though

That sucks horribley.

My old harddrive crashed because I downloaded some game that was far beyond the computers limits, and it screwed up and wouldnt start. So this guy offered to fix it because he has a crush on my mom (my mom is divorced, so the guy isnt as bad as he could be).

So, he takes it to fix it, and 6 months later, Im like "wtf?" and I asked my mom when he was gonna fix it and so she asked him and he hadnt even started, so 6 months later, the untouched computer was given back to us, after my mom went after him.

asshole.
