At first when you hear it, it sounds like glass crunching under boots, crunch, crunch, crunch, only it doesn’t go away and you fear the worst. Then it stops and you breathe a sigh of relief. You won’t know it at this point, but the next key that is pushed is the deadliest move ever. The computer screen goes black and white text appears, it reads;
Physical dump of hard drive is in progress.
You find yourself staring at the screen in a panic and thinking Oh no! this can’t be happening. You begin to wonder when was the last time that you actually backed up the computer?
Text appears on the screen and you’re praying everything has fixed itself and life will return to normal, instead the text on the screen reads;
Physical dump of hard drive is complete.
You turn it off, then on again and now you’re just hoping much like a doctor does when trying to retrieve a patients heart beat, but instead the patient flat lines. The computer screen says no hard drive can be found. A dozen or so times of hitting the F1 button and still the same message appears.
Realization begins to set in, that it’s gone and nothing you can do will ever bring it back. You glance at the clock and note the time. Time of death 5:10 p.m.
Goodbye old friend.
