Well, this sucks...

I was in a good mood all day. I was excited because I was going to (and did) take Phoenix off of hiatus, but now I'm just frustrated. My external hard drive just... stopped working. The part that kills me is that the data is still there; I can see that 50 GB of space is being used when I look at the drive's properties, yet when I actually open the drive, well... Maybe it's best if I just show a picture.

I have no idea what that 'v' folder in the beginning is. When I click on it, I get an error, telling me the path is invalid.

As you can see, 50.6 GB is being used. The few files and folders that are showing up are all 3 KB and below, so my data must still be there, right...? I think I'll take it somewhere tomorrow and see if the data can be recovered. As much as I pride myself on being technologically savvy, this is so obviously beyond me...

God, I hope it can be recovered. So many years of my life are on that stupid drive. Every single piece of art, every creative project in general... I know it was stupid of me not to have a backup. Believe me, I'm kicking myself over it.

If you can think of anything that might help in the meantime, I'm all ears.
