      Is it a bad connection at the pins, or possibly a burnt board on the drive? May not be as big of an issue as you think. I've brought many back to life.

      The IT geeks might be able to save it, we'll see in the morning. I've not had good luck with this kind of crash in the past though, I think the odds are probably against me.

      Luckily I did a full backup about a week ago though so it's not the end of the world. Extremely annoying though as I'm on some very tight deadlines and also out of the office traveling for an entire week next week. I also lost some work that I've been doing on my resume and some searches I've collected as well recently. Just very bad timing...very frustating.

      IT could not recover the hard drive. Will spend the next day trying to get whatever I can from the past week. Can't do much...Outlook still syncronizing and drive still encrypting. Computer is SLOOOOOOOOOOOOW.

      Referring to the IT folks as "geeks" is a great way to get your ticket pushed to the back of the line.

      I've had my work laptop stolen and lost my work phone in a cab...both had to be wiped out remotely with tons of internal company investigation and police forms being filled out...it was a nightmare. Things could be worse
