On thursday morning, my hard drive died at the age of (almost) 4. I’m really glad I’m backing up my data every hour. So the whole process of getting everything up and running again was really inconvenient, but was no catastrophe!
For 58€ my disc space is now doubled (160GB now) and I had the opportunity to have a look inside my Powerbook. ;-)
So: don’t be careless and backup regularly!
