    On a 2TB external. I had the External plugged into my router for years so I could open files over the network. Hadn't really used it in a while, and I wanted to move the files to an SSD I have that was collecting dust.

    I understand files being corrupted but the External free space is way more than it should be. It wasn't a clean wipe either because I see there are a few scattered songs, the 112 discography I had, and a few scattered album art.

    If the external hard drive is around 6 years old making it usb 2.0 you can simply open the hardrive and a 2.5 inch internal drive will be inside it. If that is the case I would get one of these and try connecting it that way. It often times use to work when I worked on computers for customers years ago.

    For context, I had movies on the external and all of those movies are still there. I don't ever remember deleting any music so I'm kind of lost even trying to think what happened.

    I had a wide verity of stuff from Underground Three 6, to Underground ATL music from when i was in HS of local groups, to RnB discographies, etc.

    I assume torrenting is my only option to rebuild? OR you know of any spots? A lot of the stuff I had was rare so I dont even think I`d be able to find good links where people are seeding.

    Ok I see I missed some of that lol yeah you could be in trouble. You might have bad sectors in the hard drive hard to say for sure maybe try running a checkdisk.

    Having suffered an External HD crash once I feel your pain. The blogs are mostly dead. Try typing in the name of the album you want on google with the words zippyshare or .rar after it.

    The silver lining is that you’ll be forced to focus on music that means the most to you.

    Same thing happened to be back in 2012. From that point on, I decided to buy a backup drive and back up my hard drive every week. Only one incident has happened since, and I was able to fully recover.

    TBH streaming made me lazy. While Youtube has a ton of underground stuff, that stuff can go at any moment.

    i feel your pain breh, lost 10+ years of music back in '07, now i got multiple offsite backups and ima never let it happen to me again

    a good way to do it for the low is gsuite drive, it's $5 month for (actually) unlimited storage. and u can use a program like arq to make versioned, encrypted offsite backups.
