A question for teh computer gods.

**Warning the following post is long, boring as fuck, and full of grammatical errors - but I may be willing to suck your internet cock if you fix my shit.**

**Seriously..**




Last night I was on my computer playing a game (it was wow - don't know if that helps - also I had some internet site on I don't remeber what - no it wasn't porn) I got up for about 10 mins and when I came back there were hundreds of little error pop up boxes. I didn't think to write down what they said - I was having a major wtf moment so I just restarted my computer and ran it in safe mode with networking so I could run a virus program I use for the rare time I get something funky on my laptop. But to my surprise all of my folders were empty - the folders were there but nothing in them. This then lead to an oh shit moment. Normaly I would call my brother - as he is a computer god - but being as his heart stopped 4 times a few days ago and he had a pacemaker put in - this then led to an oh fuck moment. The only thing I could think to do at that moment - being my judgment was impared more than average due to some dickel - was to set it to a restore point I made about a week ago. This was an Oh Fuck Yes Sweet Baby Jesus moment. Did it and thought I was good to go and gave up for the night. Lo and behold this morning I went to play some tunes while getting back on wow and still the same problem - the folders are empty. My games and programs work but all the folders for everything else is empty - still nicely labeled but when you open them they are as empty as fuck. This has left me in a nerd rage/panic kicking myself for not setting up a copy on dvd.

So to the savy tech - computer gods that grace this forum -
What the fuck a nigga' to do?

When was your last automatic update?

On my laptop I've had a few problems after updates. That's why I'm asking.

Have you checked your folder options? I would begin there and reset to default, if you haven't already.

I just checked - not the problem. I gotta go run some errands so if you guys can leave any other ideas that would be great. If all else fails I'll call them. Thanks.

If you have a external HD available (or even a usb stick) see if the files appear when you copy the folder over to it. If so, copy everything you want to keep and reinstall windows.

Ignore the /b/tards.

Schedule a check disk and reboot your PC.


Posted by billgerat on 11-05-2011 08:49 PM:

Ignore the /Z/tard.

These guys will tell you how to fix any virus you get. It may take a few days before they get to you, but there's NOTHING they can't help you with.

That would be awesome if it was a virus .... which it isn't.

The guy in the video sounds like he's playing with his balls.

I hate to point this out ............ but you know the videos you make, that's exactly how you sound!

So he probably is playing with his balls.

Why?


Posted by Azbat the 4th on 11-06-2011 12:43 AM:

rt click> Previous versions tab... look at all the previous incarnations of the effected folder and then reclaim your files...

EDIT consider a backup solution.

It's a chick, and Macs almost never fuck up as in this example.


Posted by retroguy_fawkes on 11-06-2011 03:28 AM:

Meh, I call everyone "dude."

Macs have problems too.
