Apparently, you also downloaded a virus that likely destroyed your files.
Visit www.google.com and search for "file recovery".

Try www.ontrack.com to see how much they will charge to try to recover the
data on the drive.

Let's examine the facts:

You commit a felony (online theft of movies and.or software that does not
belong to you).
In the course of committing a felony, i.e. the illegal downloading of movies
which you did not pay for,
something corrupts a drive on your computer. Then you come into a public
forum, openly admit your guilt, and ask for help?

I would say that you got what you deserved.

You are a thief and have no morals whatsoever.

You cannot justify taking anything that does not belong to you. Don't
give me the crap about "if the prices were lower...". The reason that
prices for DVD movies is not lower is because of scumbags like you that
steal them.

Crawl back into your dark little hole and do not bother us again.

Bobby

Bobby,

I don't like people stealing songs/movies any more than you. But, even if
not one more song/movie was stolen, - the prices would NOT go down. The
companies would just revel in their increased wealth.

Maybe not a good analogy, but when was the last time your health insurance
premium went down because you had no claims for a year? *It will never
happen*.

I'm glad to see that you are judge jury and executioner. Oh wait, what
country do I live in again?Oh yeah, the one where fascists like you and YOUR
president are going to tear down any resemblance of a free democracy. It's
great to see compassionate conservatives like you.

Repost to another NON Micro$oft group.Most of the people here think your
just as bad as a pedophile now.Ridiculous.
When you repost DO NOT mention what kind of data you lost and be more
specific as to what exactly happened (i.e. error messages) when you tried to
access the drive.
