    I just dropped a 4TB WD External Drive damaged the platter in the drive itself it seems. I am getting the click of death. So I'm guess not only have I lost close to $200 on the drive but I have lost 250 wii .wbfs files I had been collecting for years.

    What have you lost?

    Help me feel better haha

    A 640GB hard drive that i accidentally dropped while trying to reset my Wii. It took me so long to reinstall all those games on a new hard drive.

    One time when I was working Cart Attendant, I had my case with my 3DS games (about 6 at the time) in my back pocket. As I was circling back, I saw it on the ground, and it had been ran over. Every game was destroyed.
    Hence my movement to purely digital only games. Fuck cartridges.

    I forgot
    In 5th grade, I had my GBA SP with Pokemon Emerald in my desk, when I came back from recess the thing was on the Teacher's desk, and after that I never saw it again :sad:

    And we can't, of course, forget all that money I'll never get back that I spend on hookers and drugs :teach:

    You might be able to "fix" the dreaded clicking of death with a torque screwdriver. Of course the physically damaged sectors will never be usable again, but you can mark them and block them with the right utilities and use only the working sections of the drive.



    Funnily enough, I lost an HDD myself recently, except in my case it was a matter of some undesired shorting which damaged the logic board. I think I may have a spare logic board for it somewhere, but I haven't bothered fixing the drive yet.

    As for things I've lost and I'll never get back... huh... Virginity? :tpi:
