Re: My Hard Drive is About to Crash- What Should I Do?

Sorry, not meaning to sound odd, but is eBay not your friend in Russia? As in, order a HDD from, oo, the UK or France (so transport distance is minimal) and whack some insurance on it to cover it if it arrives broken?

Back at the start of the year my HDD started making weird noises and actually crashed. I was able to do some voodoo and recover it, and moved all my crucial files onto a backup drive. A week later, it died for good. Still have stuff to get off it, mostly music, but it can wait. First time I actually had the sense to heed the warning.
1984? We're way beyond that!
