Hey hey Okay so after a little advise.. I have a mac laptop and a big tower gaming computer. use the pc for making beats becasue its an old gaming rig that can handle loads! Love it! But it wouldn't turn on the other day, now its in a pc repair centre. the bloke says it needs a new motherboard (costly as its a 3rd gen pc or something) so obviously i NEED to replace motherboard - and find 300 quid from somewhere! So, Im not a pc expert... As you all do, have about 50000+ samples/ sounds/ wip tracks etc that are stored on the pc (cry) can I get them back once motherboard is replaced? if NOT, can i get them all off the hard drive and eventually use again? please understand that this is serious to me as i've spend 5 years making what is on that pc.... I have bought an external hard drive so in future this doesn't happen. Sorry for the essay, its like im menstruating or something...really kinda stressy when shit like this goes down. cheers fellas!
