Okay so I need to get the data from the old HDD on my computer, yada yada yada.

But this thing is behaving really strange. Everytime I connect it to my computer all three partitions show up but only one can be opened. If I try to open the main one the status bar just lingers towards the end. Many times windows freezes up or the screen becomes completely green with the exception of one chrome window.

If I connect it to another computer only one of the two drivers install and the partitions don't show up at all

In Testdisk it gets stuck on please wait while it's supposed to load the drives, same thing in EaseUS Data Recovery. Recuva or Crystal Disk Info won't even open up if it's connected. They open up immediately after I disconnected though.

And somehow Crystal Disk Info got the info of the drive when it opened up even after I removed it. What's even more weird is that it's not even a failed drive, it should be loading up (pic in next post)

What the fuck is going on?

its dead. no amount of "messing around with it" will get your stuff back. the other alternative is to send it to a pro data recovery shop (expensive but if you data is that important)

btw did you even try that hdd regen program (yeah its a pay program but there are cracks for it)
Which one?

As I was saying here

Would you be able to help me with the process I listed? Even if it doesn't work if you help me through the entire process I will pay you
$30 to show you how to recover data? LOL. If the information is that valuable to you, where are the backups? If you have no backups (bad anon) then pay up for professional data recovery solutions. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO RECOVER THE DATA YOURSELF as it might make the situation even worse.
I really don't have the money to pay for the professionals and by the time I got it the drive would probably be completely ded.

I swear I will pay you, if it's as easy as you say then why not just take the offer?
If it's really important to you, then you should go take it and go to an expert in order to recover your data.
It should cost you around 100 euros.

Asking from someone on g to "guide" you through skype is extremely stupid. They don't give a shit whether you save your data or not.

There are many data recovery programs on the internet, but once again, if your data is important to you (and yes, memories (photos/videos) is important), I would suggest you to stop experimenting with the disk and take it to an expert, as they other anon suggested above.

I hope that after this, will you will buy an external drive and use it as backup for your data.

How do you stay productive, /g/?

Pic not related.
14 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Caffeine, other people around me being productive (pair programming is so draining but holy shit so much gets done), and, if I'm really not into what I'm doing or just very tired or something, using a time boxing technique like Pomodoro can really help.
Every time my boss asks me for an estimate, I multiply it by 2x before I give it to him.
And then he multiplies it by 1.5x before telling the client how much service hours it will cost.
i'll let you know once i've figured it out

I'm expecting decent things from Cortana-enabled browsing and I'm not even a decent fan of halo (but I did play the games because my older brother wanted to co-op).

I'm expecting huge things from Microshaft this year otherwise it's a permanent switch to linux from me.

In light of all the recent µBlock shilling, it'd be nice to have a thread on any and all downsides (if any) of µBlock.
If you are currently using, or have used, µBlock - post your bad experiences here.

I'm probably not alone in being curious of it but would like some objective reviews before taking a shot at it.

>This add-on has not been reviewed by Mozilla.

for what reason
My only complaint is I have to manually update it and it has a lot of fucking updates making this a constant thing, especially with my update fetish.
I could automate this with a script but meh.
Frankly a small problem in the grand scheme of things, it has blown adblock out of the water and I've replaced it on all my systems with this.
Performance has improved in firefox somewhat, which is amazing considering how fucked up firefox is getting with every update.
I did let /g/ shill me into Ublock. I think adblock + and adblock edge got the job done better. Ever since I started using Ublock I am getting very small ads on youtube videos and I did see one pop up on a random website.

I am fully willing to admit it might be that I just haven't configured it properly. Also I think I am still on the first release. Does this thing auto update?
>and its lack of switching to Australus is reason enough to use it.

Except there's an extension that does the same thing...

Until its cool again after 30 years.
Except the 80's. The 80's will never be cool "again" because they were never cool in the first place. Hell even the first bits of the 90's were pretty much sleeping off the last bits of the bad hangover from the 70's that was the 80's.
80s were cool in the late 00's late 10's though. It's all about the 90's now, what the fuck you talking about?

My point here; >>46762965 (You)
is that it doesn't matter what the frame rate is, if you have functioning eyeballs, you will still see it.
I am not really invested in this whole debate. I don't play vidya. I am more interested in the world ending than I am in ignoring it.
There was a "pc master race" guy who did a blind test with 144hrz vs 60hrz monitors, and most people couldn't tell the difference.
Can the Average Gamer See More than 60Hz??? NCIX Tech Tips: http://youtu.be/yWEpIwNDeCA
The human eye maxes out at about 20000fps in my testing, using a strobing LED as test signal. However, about 1000fps is probably enough for all natural motion.
Invalid test, framerate was below refresh rate.
did you watch it?
if so you would see that indeed you can tell, everytime if its a 144 or 60
that "average gamer" was just some slacker who couldnt tell his asshole from his elbow but Linus could tell every time.

Not the one who asked, but if anyone could give us a good intro to backend with command line... would be great.

For the uninitiated, here is everything you need to know about uBlock and why it is the future of browser-based blocking


Adblock Plus is officially kill. uBlock is all that matters now.

Say no to the Adblock Plus shills that will attack this thread. Say yes to real grassroots, open-source, independent blocking with uBlock!

My firefox is going all fucked up, sometimes when I click to open the menu it pops up for a second then closes but the icon is still pushed in like it's open (pic related). When I try to open it again it only shows the customize, ? and (') [close firefox] options.

Closing and reopening firefox fixes it but it's fucking annoying.

personally I'm more excited for project silk with its long time goal to achieve stable 60fps with vsync all the time while browsing.

Here you can see that atm no matter which browser you use stable 60 fps are a dream:
that is blatantly wrong.
