The problem with my new 250GB drive was worse than I thought. After futzing a little bit to try to get POP to work in Outlook, I rebooted. Er, I tried to reboot. I received the dreaded "error reading boot device". I know what this really means, it means the boot record is messed up, and it also means I am reloading the entire drive again. Sigh. So the data on the drive is good - I was able to back up Documents and Settings (where all my volatile files live) using a TrueImage recovery CD, reinstall my old 100GB drive, restore the volatile files, and poof! I'm back on the air. But I still have a whole recovery session ahead of me... well, that's what football is for, right?
