Had a hard reminder a few days ago...my hard drive died and i had at least 3 months of photos that needed to be properly backed up. I'm currently recovering raw files from memory cards then I'm going to work on switching out the circuit board on the hard drive to try and get it working again, but it aint looking good. Plugged it into my netbook and it doesnt even recognize the hard drive... So yeah...reminder to you all...back up those photos!!!
