    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Well it happens to everyone I guess....and even with precautions I still lost out....but the ol' lappy crashed yesterday and rather than copying my backed up data from my external drive, I cut it and moved all my "important" radio geek stuff over first after a reformat. Big mistake, system still wasn't stable and crashed again....so alllll my files and records I've accumulated over the years are now gone.

So, to any of you out there that I emailed one of my personal listings to at some point, I would greatly appreciate if you could kindly send me a copy back... I had a file with trunked systems, a frequency listing, and talkgroup listing, so if any of that might ring a bell, please see if you can find it and send it to my email: trumpetman [at] radioreference [dot] com.

Thanks for the help folks, and try not to laugh too hard as you read this...

I've already reformatted it. I've got a bit of know-how too, being a Computer Engineering major and all, but I appreciate it. My biggest mistake was partitioning out the whole harddrive for a single OS rather than splitting it up so there was a chance of salvaging bad data while working off of the good partition. No getting it back now though.
