Laptop Harddisk Failure

I’m currently mourning the loss of my laptop’s hard disk. I don’t think
there was massive amounts of data on there that I needed, but it’s still
upsetting. Looks like I’ll have to buy a new 2.5″ drive. At least it
gives me a reason to reinstall Debian.

Update: The bad news is that it is actually a 1.8″
drive, which means I need to spend 93GBP including tax and postage for a
new drive. Should get it by Friday. The good news is that having left
the laptop off during the day, I managed to get the laptop booting and
am not rsyncing the data off as fast as I can. Shame about the money,
but at least I haven’t lost much in the way of data.
