Some potential bad news regarding UQMG

Well,

It was just a matter of time. My Hard-drive gave me the screen of death last night. After Checkdisk ran for about 10 hours trying to fix bad sectors, I was able to logon... thus here I am writing this.

I was fortunate enought to be able to save my latest work from UQMG in my second hard-drive before it completely dies. But, I will be replacing my primary hard-drive and installing Windows from scratch, so it will be a while until I release UQMG upgrade for 1946... hopefully not too long.

I have all the upgrade done for all new planes and ground objects, updates to the databases, etc... plus I finished the Singapore 2 map, and am (well... was) working on the Northwest Europe Map. I'll hurry as much as I can pending family and work.

As always, thank you for using UQMG.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

There are some free tools on the Web to help you with your hard drive.

First - stop using that drive, get a new one quick and think of it as you have one good chance to get your data off.

Second - You could try these tools to recover data. http://free-backup.info/data-recovery-software.htm

Third - Get a backup program - This one is free and very well done http://www.educ.umu.se/~*****n/*****nbackup.htm (http://www.educ.umu.se/%7E*****n/*****nbackup.htm)

Also try robocopy -Its a Microsoft tool that is low tech and very good at backing up files. http://www.devhood.com/tools/tool_details.aspx?tool_id=321


Your data is important don't let your stuff get lost to a old hard drive your time is valuable.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Thanks for even trying to recover any part of it. So many rely on so few for missions over and above the meagre supply that ships with the game...<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
