I know the feeling

I picked up a LaCie 30gb external pocket drive a while back. Backed up all my data to it, while I reformatted both computers. I got some basic info off it, but then I got busy with work and school and such. Went travelling... got down to where I was going, pulled out the drive (this is a drive explicitly designed for portability, mind you)... and it wouldn't mount.

I sent it off to LaCie (who were very cool about the whole thing, actually... kudos to them). They couldn't fix it, so they sent it to a specialist data recovery center (one of the best in the country, but semi-affordable with the LaCie discount). A week or two later, I get a call from the recovery center saying that they couldn't recover ANY data off the drive. Total cost: $300 to find that out.

On the bright side, LaCie sent me a brand new drive that actually has a better bus than the original (original was two firewire ports and a usb port... this one is two firewire ports and a usb2 port).

Now I have everything archived in triplicate: two drives plus monthly cd archiving.
