Data Recovery Dollar Blues

Spent my coffee break on the phone this morning with three places that deal in data recovery and the like. The news is not good. Because they use specialized software and equipment for doing this sort of thing, the cost for transferring the data off my old laptop hard drive will run around $400-$800. Only one place offered to do it for less than that, around $250, but they do this only a special basis, and would take 2 months to get the job done.

I think I'm going to have to find another means of getting the data off the old hard drive onto another medium.

In the meantime, gotta start thinking about getting ready for Gen Con, but for now, back to the grindstone.
