Not my day today.

Last night, I checked the pH of the green water breeding tank, it was around 9, so I said shit and started bringing it down. Looks like I did it too fast, all the daphnia, and fry (around 500 of them) are dead this morning. Got to start again. So shit. And this is after I made about $150 selling daphnia on gumtree over two weeks, sold well(luckily I sent out 4 bags on monday, and I took down the listings).

The SSD in my computer died this morning, computer won't detect it at all, I tried it in the work computer, same deal. It has all my unfinished videos, timelapses from tomatoes growing, unfinished longer term projects like my front yard. All the graphics I made up like the lower thirds (when my name moves at the bottom of the video, and social media links. I backed it up about 3 months ago, but SSD's are supposed to be reliable, so I didn't do it more often. Stupid mistake.

And one of my chickens died (on Friday), she's an ISA brown cross at 2-3 years old, so was probably her time, but I liked that chicken.

Comes in threes.

I feel like going home and playing a video game, but my computer won't work.

That's a real bummer on all three accounts! :support: I've never had to recover from a SSD drive, but I have used a Data Recovery service in the past for regular SCSI drives when our data was valuable enough. I noticed the Ontrack guys I've used in the past are now are called KrollOntrack and they do have offices on Australia in case you want to contact them:

Thanks for the link, I sent them an email. But I had a look at a few other websites, and they are quoting like $300 - $2500 to recover an SSD, the cheaper being when people just delete something accidently, so I'm not holding my breath.

I might try a getto reflow.

I bought a new SSD, installed windows, updated everything, and it still wouldn't detect the old SSD.

I rung up the place you went to Sam, it was $90 for them to look at it, then $600-$2000 depending on the difficulty to remove the information.

So I set my oven to 150C, left it on some wax paper for 8 minutes, took it out, plugged it in, and it worked!

So I have all my information back. One good ending at least. Yey for getto reflow.

Heating it might not have been the fix - might have just been the cable or connection that you were using. I'd check that if it starts acting up again. There isn't much to go wrong with these.

lol, nice work Colum. Bet you have it all backed up now.

I think we are all a little slack on the back up stuff till we have a close call.

Sucks about the Ph problem though. Why did it go so high?

No idea on the pH, I was shocked so I over reacted. It was filled up with tap water, and I've usually got high pH, but I didn't think it was that high.

With the reflow, I tried every cable, different computers, tried the SSD card at the computer shop, made sure it didn't work on their test system, and tried it on my work computer - no dice. Heating it up did work. I'm not going to trust that SSD anymore, I'm sure it was just a temp fix, but it was fixed long enough to transfer the files, which I'm happy with.

I know that 150C isn't hot enough to remelt solder, but it jogged something into place long enough to transfer everything off, which is all I wanted.

Adelaide tap water is probably all over the PH scale now after the weather we have been having lately

I watched a video claiming it wouldn't work, from a computer repair guy, and solder doesn't melt until far hotter, and it'll just ruin it. But I had nothing to loose, and gave it 5 minutes, and it worked.

*shrugs*

Maybe you could have tried that with the chicken - worst case you'd have dinner on the way. :shifty:

That is so good! I'm very happy for you. :dance:

It sure sucks losing data... The last time I used a data recovery service they saved us from having a data entry department of 30+ fast typers reenter over 2 weeks worth of work. We were very happy to pay the lower price of data recovery versus 2 weeks worth of overtime for 30+ employees. I've also had the reverse of the ghetto reflow work for hard-drives -- freeze it (or at least chill it) in the fridge, before yanking it out and quickly snatching the valuable data off a dying drive. Macs have a pretty good thing going with the Time Machine automatic backup system. The last time I was in the States I picked up a 4 TB drive for about $100 USD and partitioned 1 TB for backups and every since I've had complete system and incremental backups.
