Holy Blue Screen of Death, Batman! Just had a MASSIVE corruption of several files on my comp caused by a power surge (according to the news a local power substation, um, kind of, well, blew up).
No big deal, really. Office went down. I have the discs. 3 mins to reinstall and I have isolated backups of all documents. No sweat. A few other minor things....then disaster.
STEAM was irrevocably corrupted. Beyond any possibility of repair. I was forced to delete everything in the STEAM folder. I had more than sixty games in there. I am currently attempting to salvage my save game files before redownloading every goddamn game I had on STEAM.
At least no actual software was lost, and I'm 90% certain I can save the save files, but DAMN is this annoying. No video games for sandman tonight. Maybe I'll play some Assassin's Creed or Minecraft or City of Heroes or Champs Online or LOTROL. Those weren't on STEAM. Might fire up Rise of Flight. haven't flown in a while....
