    Digging Through Hard drives


    Get your standard issued shovel over there on the racks. *points to racks*

    I have a 1TB hard drive sitting next to my computer and while it's always plugged in I hardly go on it.

    Well today digging through it I found some pictures, some music, and above all some documents I've forgotten about.

    So what's the point of the thread?

    Well with your shovel in hand or mouth... or foot. What would be the most shocking thing be that you've forgotten about be it music, documents, or pictures. You do not need to detail what you found.

    I'd say the most shocking thing I've found would be stories I've wrote and forgotten about.

    P.S.- Forgetting your taxes doesn't count

    Old treasured emails found in an old backup. Had lost the hd but had forgotten the emails contained in the backup. Now two of us are happier

    I dig through stuff regularly, reassess & discard so really no surprises.

    Of course.

    On a more serious note, I haven't found many interesting things on old hard drives. I have however found a picture of a sugar glider I don't recognise and I'm not entirely sure how it got there.

    Gotta love when we put things on them acting like we'll need it again sometime and forget about it. Then come back a year or two later and wonder either why does it still exist or how the heck it got on the drive in the first place.

What hard drive is best these days for performance, reliability and low noise. The Samsung Spinpoint F1 used to be the drive of the day. I'm a little out of touch the last few years, the western digital caviar black looks good. Thanks Tony
Just installed Win 8 but cant for the life in me get it to see the other Hard Drives or DVD Drives. The problem might be that 'Intel(R) C600/X79 series chipset 6-Port SATA AHCI Controller' has a little yellow icon against it. However I cant seem to get rid of it. Any Ideas?
