Yerf Seeks Donations

No votes yet

Yerf, one of furry fandom's most prominent archives of art has recently experienced a catastrophic hard drive faliure. They're currently looking for donations towards getting a data recovery service to look at the disk, as there was no backup of the data. You can find out more information, including where and how to donate on the Yerf Community.

Cost of a second hard drive for backups: $200.
Cost of a removable drive bay to put it in: $20.
Cost of recovering data from a badly-crashed drive: $2000+.

I think it's time for me to invest in a couple of extra drives around here, too (even a day or two of lost work gets expensive).

Didn't you learn from last time you blew it? How on earth can someone be as stupid as to not make a backup of a HD. Let alone a server.

Are you sure you didn't make a backup and put $2.000+ in your pocket? There tons of cheap programs that do it just as well.

Software can't really fix faulty hardware. I'm sure they tried as much as they could with software. When a harddrive truly goes out, theres nothing software can do to make it work again. That's like frying a videocard and expecting updated drivers to fix it. Regardless, they should have had some sort of backup. Seriously.
