I had a hard drive crash, and it took all my bass lesson teaching materials with it. I've been able to reconstruct just about everything except my small collection of big band charts. I can likely start rebuilding once classes start in the Fall, but does anyone have any PDFs of big band bass charts? This is for high school kids, so just about anything's appropriate.

My email address is in my profile, thanks in advance.

Oh s***t, I have a Hal Leonard Fake Book which is enormous but it only has treble clef and chords..if it's any use post back.
I guess portable HD backup is next on the list of purchases if it happens again

You can send the hard drive to DiskSavers or perhaps a local PC vendor that specializes in disaster recovery for hard drive failures. It has saved my business on more than one occasion. Just run a Google search for hard drive data recovery. It may be cheaper than buying all of those charts, but still not real cheap in either event. I also recommend you use Mozy or Carbonite to back up to an offsite location. I sue both for my office data. One never has too much protection!

Contact Drive Savers and they will extract and save your lost data if you send them your hard drive.

Can't help with charts, but if I may suggest Carbonite back up.
I've had 2 major scares with the Blue Screen Of Death. After the second one (pulled out of both okay), I swore I'dnever, ever risk the possibility of losing virtually everything on my laptop.

Man, when I signed up and they started downloading my memory, the relief was massive!
I didn't want to run the risk of buying a hard drive for back up either. Reading reviews suggest none are totally reliable. So, I pay about $1.15/wk, and everything I save is automatically backed up.

I have no vested interest in Carbonite or any of the others (there are several good companies that backup, as I'm sure you know).

I did this about two years ago and, although I no longer am a listener to any talk radio, I used the Discount Code 'Rush' and saved 10%

So, like I said...if I may suggest....
