I had to reinstall my operating system.
I was preparing some floppy disk images over the week I had out from school, and somehow, I manage to overwrite my system hard drive instead of the floppy in the USB drive. How does that happen? Aren't there supposed to be security controls on the system drive, of all drives? That piece of shit imaging program overwrote my motherfucking 1 TB drive with MS-DOS 6.22. Didn't even boot; the master boot record was trashed.
The bright side of things: I got a 2 TB drive to replace it initially, since I thought it silently failed to begin with. I thought it was strange I didn't hear it grinding or clicking or anything. I got a cool little program to recover the partitions on the old drive, and I could then copy pretty much everything over without changing much. Desktop icons, and even the folders I had set to custom icons, synced perfectly. Looks just like it used to! Had to reinstall a few major things, but that only took the rest of that Sunday. I'll be reinstalling little things over the next few months that I'll need once I get to that point.
All of this leaves me with an extra 1 TB drive. What should I do with it, other than take it apart? I've already recently taken apart two drives for their magnets and motor modules.
