When hard drives attack

I'm irritated. Last night when I booted up my computer, the hard drive began making a nice clicking noise. Not good. I'm not pleased. There's a lot of stuff I need to get off of there. I backup all of my normal documents daily to an off-site Internet provider (happens in the background), but there is still a lot of stuff that I don't have, like photos waiting to be burned to DVD, Photoship files for my sites, etc.

I don't think it's impossible to save the stuff that's on there, but what a pain in the ass. It's an 80 gig drive that's not even that old, perhaps a year old.

The biggest problem is that I pretty much would rather be doing ANYTHING else this weekend.

You could always ignore it an enjoy a problem-free weekend. Don't worry about it until Monday. And then, call the hard drive company and see if they will replace it.

That happenned to mine last year Jeff...not good! It went ka-put shortly after. I didn't have time to get my crap off, man I still regret that. We tried all this sci fi stuff to make it work too, like freezing it...but no luck :o(.

You froze your hard drive? I've never heard of doing that before. I would assume that would do more damage.
