He's just trying to recover the data. He has a lot of code on the drive that he wants to retrieve. The drive itself became error prone when he had an electrical problem in his house. He managed to fix some of the disk errors through scan disk, but he's told me there's just too many of em.
He's not planning to reuse the drive. He's already got a replacement. I haven't spoke with him in a day or two... so i'll update his progress when i learn of it.
The only \"intuitive\" interface is the nipple. After that, it\'s all learned. ;)
