ok guys so this is an update on my hard drive.
so i was contacted today by the company that's recovering my data, and they said that the data is ready for pick up. all i have to do is just take a small hard drive to them, which i already acquired, and they will transfer the recovered data onto it and return it too me.
so this is a relief to me as i now have some closure on the status of my data, and i should be back up and running soon.
ugh, just a little side note though that's gonna put a big dent into my plans though, my university classes started and my schedule is kind of a cluster f. also the work load and revision is massive, so yh. probs no art for a while though.
