I've sent the knackered disk drive away to see if the data can be recovered. I am awaiting news. Lets collectively cross our fingers. In the meantime I have been watching the low res render of the project (which I made only days before the crash) and making notes. The interest from Kyle Newman and TheForce.net has given me new motivation to get this done. Lets just hope the drive is salvageable. Otherwise it may take me another few years to get it made!
