So you might have read about my ultimate nightmare of losing my entire 300 gigabyte iTunes library. I made a few phone calls today and got prices ranging from $500 to $2500 (plus the cost of a new hard drive) to recover all the data from my dead drive. My bank accounts just can’t take that type of hit at the moment, so I have resigned myself to building back my entire music library.
I do have to give props to Apple, as they are letting me download all of my purchased music and videos again. Unfortunately I have many, many, many more albums that I have acquired elsewhere. Those will be regained via Bit Torrent!
I got a great deal on a 1.5 terabyte Segate External Drive at Best Buy and will steadily rebuild my music library. I’m using Senuti to recover all the songs that are still on my iPod. The salt in the wound is that my iPod crashed about a week before my hard drive. I had my 30 gig iPod stuffed with music! After it crashed, I was lazy and didn’t put much music on it so that sucks!
I’ll probably be blogging on my situation from time to time. Wish me luck!
