Argh, I missed the live show. I was really looking forward to this golden podcast. And if Emanuel kicked ass then this episode is probably worth money. :D

Shit happens William, unfortunately twice in a short period of time, but that will only make you more careful in the future. And even though the episode fails you always post a huge news post about it. Very professional.

Could everyone stop acting like a bunch of retards?
He said that he tried a lot of programs and seeing as he has his honor degree he knows what he’s doing.
I’m sure he know more about recovering those files then most of the people here.
So back off and leave him alone, he’s done a great job on this podcast so far and he’s bound to make up for this.

I have a habit of emptying the recycle bin. Its like OCD but in pixel-waste-paper form.
You really know how to keep us on our toes. At least the next episode is extended.

It figures. Both days that I’ve tried(and failed at) waking up to listen in live, the episode gets deleted/screwed up.

A real shame, I was looking forward to Eman’s virtuoso display in this episode. I had heard from several credible sources (not Nic…he’s a liar and a thief) that Eman rocked the mic. I did stop by for a few moments to listen to the live interview with GE: S and there were around 46 live listeners so fortunately some people got to enjoy it. In the time I listened, it sounded like a particularly interesting one I would have liked to have kept.

Hey William,

It’s worth giving this a shot, I won’t guarantee anything (because sometimes it’s just a lost cause), but I use a Linux distro called Parted Magic for file recovery on a weekly basis and it’s almost always successful. Download it here: http://partedmagic.com/download.html

It’s an ISO, so burn it to a CD using something like IMGBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/

Then just boot from it, and open up the Appication called Photorec. Head over to the options panel (it’s a text based GUI), and set it to recover MP3 files only. Then just set a recovery dump location (such as your primary HD, or better, a secondary HD/Ext HD, and set it going. It usually takes just under an hour to search everything, and it gives you a live read out of what it’s found, then afterwards you can check through them with VLC or boot back into Windows and see if it’s been restored.

The best part about the above is A) It’s all open source and B) It’s non intrusive, as it all runs from live CDs.

Good luck! (Unless you’ve already given up!)

Wills

This is a good suggestion – probably the best yet, I burnt this LiveCD and broke out a few others including recovery distribution builds of Ubuntu and Knoppix. Unfortunately after much patience still nothing – found a lot of cool things that brought back some memories though… and mostly porn.

WILLIAM

STOP USING YOUR COMPUTER NOW. Contact me immediately this afternoon and I can help you to recover the files. They are not gone forever!

Just so everyone is aware,

I did try using various recovery tools – my count is up to ten now. I have given up recovering these files and since continued normal operation on my PC – which involves lots of file transfers. So even if there was so magic piece of software out there that was able to recover the files there is no hope now. Once again, sorry everyone, but the Podcast is truly lost.

Anyone not attending live, dont worry we will have the recorded interview embedded in next week’s news post for your convenience! quoted from GES Moddb Page

Sorry to disappoint Diesal

also feel free to remove most of those !!!!’s in my first post they go off the page lol
leave enough so it makes a point while looking neat for you ;-)

ok soz i think i did go abit over the top
but hey we are only human we make mistakes
all i read was that the files were gone and raged i SOOOO wanted to listen to that interview :’(
well ur having them back on again and the important shit is going to be re-said.
lol is it just a coincidence that you failed at #69?

Shouting and screaming telling somebody to do something like they’re fucking obligated to do so will not get you anywhere. We should be happy that William is nice enough to admit his mistakes and try to redo most of the topics in next week’s episode.

You have my complete sympathy. I know exactly how you feel. Just another reason to have Syncplicity.com

Yes use that William, or Dropbox! Both are good! Dropbox is pretty much the same as synclipicity but instead you have to drop files in the dropbox folder while syncplicity automatically syncs chosen folders.

Personally I like dropbox alot, but when you want to expand storage space for free, syncplicity can expand to 5 GB I think, while dropbox goes to 3 GB max.

It will help alot to prevent this in the feature :D

That’s why I like Syncplicity; you don’t have to do anything, except config the right folders for you and the rest is dealt with automagically.

To my knowledge Syncplicity is the only free service that has that option.

William failed #69? Not a surprise… On a more serious note, we forgive you William, just try to be more careful in the future.

Recover the files! Chances are they are still sitting on your hard-disk and be recovered using any number of file recovery utilities. Get a free trial of “Uneraser” and see if you get lucky .
