Post 3+ Months Ago

Sometime last week I was rendering a Quicktime movie from AVID Express.

I left my computer alone, then went to work (after all, the movie was over 1 hour long).

I get home, and guess what? I can't access anything on my brand new 160GB Hard Drive.

Restart

Then Windows says that my drive needs to be formatted.

When I went into the drive properties it says that the total size of the drive was 0 bytes.

I formatted the *peach* thing, and brought up my back-ups, and everything is ok (I think).

Does anyone know why or how this could happen?

Thanks for your replies everyone.

Every time I think about it, I think about how VALUABLE back ups are.

The cause of this incident may be a mystery forever, but at least a lesson is learned.

Thanks again :)

Sometimes it happend to me to don't recognize the HDD or the CD, I speak with a friend of mine that work for an international computer company and he told me that could be various problems.
1. Mainboard - actually the controller
2. Cables
3. Bios
4. The component is broken

Regarding that worm (virus) i don't believe that if you have a good firewall can spy. Or do as I done, pass to Linux. Linux rulz :)

Regards,
Ovi
