Data on the rocks

My mom’s hard drive died on Sunday.  I dropped in a spare and got Windows XP installed but all her games and junk are still missing.  All the important data (financials, taxes, resumes, e-mail, etc.) is stored on the server (SATA RAID-5) and backed up nightly but her games were all local to her box.  So I let the drive sit since removing it Sunday and now I put it in the freezer.  I’ll see if I can get it to at least copy the Program Files directory over to the server so she doesn’t lose her savegames and high scores.

      It worked perfectly. I was able to restore everything without a problem.
