Happy New Year to everyone, since I didnt get the chance to post it earlier.. The day after Christmas my beloved :wink: Maxtor went t**s up and took along the wonderful Hp recovery partition also..
Now my music Pc is ok and ghosted but its amazing what i lost from the pc that I use online and didnt care enough about it to ghost image//...

moral of story... have a backup.... even if you dont think its worth the effort...its hard to replace progs and files///

Believe it or not I had two HD die on me within 3 days of each other. One a Maxtor and the other a Western Digital drive. No manufacturer is immune. Although I've never had a Seagate drive in any system here, I hear that they can be unreliable as well.

For me, I purchased the Lacie Enthernet Disk 500GB NAS (Networked Attached Storage) unit from Lacie. I simply placed it in my network here and mapped to it from each of my machines. I use Acronis True Image 8.0 from to create scheduled backups of all my machines daily. It's infallible or at least has been in my experience.

Just an idea. for Shoutcast Song History display that's easy.
