Hi ,
All PCs/servers must be backed up.
Without a backup , you must always start from scratch to re-install everything.
If you cannot afford backup , hard disk recovery charges are even higher (more expensive).
It is still cheaper to backup and be ready for emergencies.
If you do not backup regularly , you run this risk.
Even then , you must also regularly test recovery to ensure backup is sound.
Good luck,
David

Your "Favorites" were on your old harddrive and unless you backed them up prior to the crash, you won't be able to retrieve them.

Hi,

3 possible reasons: You have a virus, your windows installation is corrupted or your hardrive is on its way out.

For the first 2 reasons, do a full recovery.

Last reason, get a new hardrive.

Thanks

Your hardrive has probably crashed. I have been trying to fix mine and after weeks of studying, i found out I need a new video card. If you have demos then my problem may be yours too. If you are trying to play games and it crashes, then it's the video card. The only game that works with a broken video card is Street Fighter 4, but you can't save. Visit this link for better instruction on how to fix non-video card problems. I hope it helps!

No HDD:20 Please PWR OFF


It means the harddrive has crashed. I have the same model. It is a manufacturer flaw. You can try saving your recordings on external devices or contacting Tascam directly.

It can be the game installation corrupted, does not look like video adapter problem.
Backup all the files from the game, so that you can recover all old savings, then proceed reinstalling the game, if asked chose to keep saved files.
Do a backup first.
