This is not happening...

This afternoon while I was at university my brother went and deleted the folder(s) that held ALL my U2 bootlegs...i only have a couple on cds but i had about 20 complete shows on the HD, plus a heap of rarities, miscelaneous songs, b sides and even a couple shows by other artists...all the stuff ive collected via my crummy ole dialup connection in the past year has been lost like that, he didnt even ask me until after hed done it...I was buying a burner next week so i could clear it off the drive, but now its all totally gone...this isnt freakin fair *sobs*

OMG--brettig! I don't know what to say... I'm so sorry I know that you've been working on getting that bootleg collection *sigh*

Please, please, please--atleast slap your brother around with a large trout or something... it's completely necessary!

man, that's awful

if you'd let us know which shows/songs you want, maybe some of us can download/burn them for you (may save you some time retrieving all the stuff)

Your folks are siding with your BROTHER?!?!?!??!?!?! Sorry, Brettig, you were born into a clearly insane family.

If I were your father, I would definitely side with you - and maybe even consider a a slight punishment for your brother (e.g. he spends time getting or helping you regain those lost files). As a person who uses a computer a lot, I consider it a criminal offense to simply delete files without asking. I understand that files take up valuable hard drive space - but your brother should have ASKED first. If he asked and you didn't do anything, then I would side with him. But for him to just presume that it is his RIGHT to delete files is inexcusable (even if it is his computer - if he shares it with you, you then have rights). I find your brother's behavior deplorable and your parents doing some poor parenting - clearly they must not be that computer literate to understand what your brother did was in poor judgment.

If I were you, I would seek some form of retribution - you would certainly be vindicated in doing so. And the best part is, you can do it on the sly. For example, 3.5" floppy disks are not only sensitive to magnets, but being touched... it would be a shame for him to lose a paper he's worked on all night....

In a less evil suggestion, often deleted files can be reobtained - even if the computer was turned off. Seek help from people who are good at retreiving files.

I think he meant should he cause bodily harm to his scatterbrained sibling, his parents would most likely side with said imbecile

They argue they cant do anything cos he didnt know what was in the folder...he deleted the folder entitled 'Games ETC' which included a folder titled 'Bootlegs' lol...yep he was negligent and unthinking and unfeeling, but he usually gets alot more slack than me in those areas *sigh*

Betty, well, dunno why im bothering replying as we are already talking in chat....but anyways. Drwho is right. Your brother is an ARSE for doing this, and the fact that you have no suuport is ludicrous.
Your brother should know better. Id kick his arse from here to Kingdom Come if he was my bro. Another thing, Ive seen you lose the plot over things so much smaller than this. I know its numb shock etc. But you have to vent, or else you will fly off the handle at something very silly later on and it wont make sense then.

Let me know about these discs, I'll try to burn them this coming week. I have some rare stuff too believe it or not
