You can still recover it based on what.you are describing. It will just require taking the drive out and moving it to a working PC to pull the data off it.

Good to know, ty. Problem is I only have the one personal laptop plus the wife and I each have work laptops. No PC, no spare personal computer. It's not a huge deal

Get a USB to sata adapter.(if it's a sata drive) (Verify what type of drive you have first since newest top end computer have NVME drives)

Then you take the drive out and plug the USB cable into the work laptop to copy/paste the data to a USB drive.

Just ordered a new phone case... Dropped my phone yesterday and the case did its job like always but I lost the plastic corner...

Oh well, $15 case breaking but protecting the phone is worth it.

Quickly becoming the entire companies tech support. Getting calls daily from people I've never fucking met and never will to help them fix shit. Fuck you, i had to learn it on my own, hardly anything I learned from others. These people just pick up the phone and call call call... Fuck you

Didn't your company send you to several weeks of different trainings...for you to be taught...by others? And you went to doozil school...to yet again be taught by others.

That mentality drives me nuts, because I've experienced it with TOOO MANY union 60+ year olds that insist on taking their job-specific knowledge with them when they retire. Yeah that knowledge will do them a lot of good when their fat cig-addicted ass dies at 70, enjoy it

I've yet to meet someone that says "i learned it on my own" that was actually self-taught. Most are just old as fuck and learned stuff from several others over a dismal 50 year career

You really think I took anything away from tech school? Literally almost nothing besides basic theory and operation. You think they were teaching me Powerstrokes and duramax? I was learning on 2 stroke Detroit and 80s engines, nothing new.

All the classes work had sent me too I barely took anything away from them and often ended up arguing with the instructor over shit.

It's complete bullshit, I shouldn't have to be helping anyone, they know how ouch is currently on my plate and they want to throw everyone else's issues at me? Fuuuuck no.

I literally spent countless hours at home on my own time researching and learning shit. Alot of trial and error at work.

Drives me crazy when I try to cross train people at work and they argue and dont want to because they think that means theyll lose their job.... No people, it simply means I can use you on a wider array of jobs and actually gives you more job security.
