I recently tried transferring all my .gig files through a network from my giga slave to my new DAW. I eventually loaded about 160 gigs of instruments. I decided to jam on a game, and when I was through I looked at the drive in 'my computer'. It was inaccessible. So I took it to the local store where it was put together, and they just did a quick format. I took it back home, reloaded the 160 gigs, and tried defragmenting it. It wouldn't let me, so I restarted my computer. It looked like it ran the checkdisk program, but it went a lot more nuts then usual. After windows finally loaded up, I looked in 'my computer', and 80% of the newly loaded giga files were erased.
What the hell is going on here? I'm pulling my hair out trying to figure this out. What should I do? Keep in mind this a brand new spankin' DAW.
