Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I just recently procured an 80GB Maxtor hard disk, and it's behaving strangely. First few days I had it it was fine, but now every time I boot, I can read the data on it and copy things over to it just fine for a while, then it disappears entirely. I don't get any messages, just My Computer and Disk Management stop seeing it and anything I had transferring to it suddenly tells me that E:\whatever refers to a location that doesn't exist. If I reboot it's back, but later on it isn't anymore.
First noticed this when I booted up the PC in the morning and everything was there, came home at the end of the day and couldn't find some data on the offending disk.
I'm running Windows Vista, but I don't think that'd be it.
Is my disk just fucked, or is there something I can do?
