It stopped working again, and this time my dad thinks it's the power thingy, so he's getting a new one as soon as he can but my computer is pretty old and rare so it might take a while, probably at least a week or so.
If these files are so important to you that you react so harshly to them being threatened, you could buy a cheap portable HD with like 500 GB (I guess should be enough?) and keep a copy of the entire folder structure on it in case shit hits the fan. That way you have insurance in case your computer goes full potato mode on you.
I have a 1TB external hard drive, which still has 300GB left, but it's impossible to copy the files onto it since the computer itself won't stay on. Also, it's possible for the external hard drive to break in one of the weird mini-electricity cuts that happen as well, so it would be pretty useless. For what it's worth, though, the night my computer originally stopped working, there was a series of big blackouts in Helsinki (which for some reason seem to have been ignored by the media as even happening (probably because they happened mostly in the poorer eastern parts of the city?)) and it obviously affected others as well. Blackouts are really rare here, so it's not surprising that them doing actual damage isn't acknowledged, I guess... but small ones do happen quite often, I think they're limited to our house or maybe even just our apartment...
Please do! I've been itching to collaborate with someone who can make beats. Using obscure free ones works for me, but it's a little jarring when I hear the beats in other places or used by other people once I've written a song with them... I'd much rather work with someone I know and make something unique.
Sorry, I really hope I'll be able to, but I don't want to take any risks with my mum's computer so I won't be able to send you anything right now for like a week at least, possibly never (if the external hard drive broke too...) but if I can, I'll do it as soon as I can.
