I came home yesterday to find that my four month old PC hard disk drive has crashed. Just came back from Imbi Plaza where I sent it to try and salvage any data at all from the disk. I was told that chances are very slim and the best I can hope for is a replacement of the disk with a new blank disk.

This is something that you hear can happen but you never expect it to happen to you, so you don't make any back ups. It would appear that a lot of my very personal data, documents, photos, music etc are gone forever and this is a very expensive lesson indeed.
