Bonehead

July 28th, 2005 by Editor B

After more than four months, a box of various equipment I requistioned finally arrived today. Included in this box was a 250 GB external firewire drive. I installed it at our video workstation, right on top of the 120 GB firewire drive which is currently chock-full of digital video files.

First order of business: Format the new drive into native Mac format. So I opened the Disk Utility, selected the drive, and formatted it.

Only I selected the wrong drive. Accidentally formatted the old drive, the one with all the video files.

Oops.

So now I’m trying to restore the data with a program called MovieSalvage. I think it’ll probably work, and we’ll get most everything back, but damn — I feel like an idiot.
