    ... surely that could never happen to me!

    howdy y'all,
    well, i've got some bad news. i recently upgraded to a new fancy computer that i desperately needed since D2 could barely run on my old system. that's not the bad news though... so i made sure to very carefully transfer all of my D2 saves into a zip disk before upgrading because i was going to put just Windows XP on my old 20GB hard disk and use my new 80GB one for all my games and other programs. Of course to do this I had to format my old HD. so everything was going great and i had loaded D2 and gotten ATMA and everything. Then my sorc hit level 70 and I decided she needed an upgrade in her gear... i go to open my ATMA stash with all of my 1.10 set/uniques... gone. :hanky: i scan my hard drive and check the zip disk and it is really and truly gone. that stash had about 400 items in it, including lots of really nice stuff... Tal's armor, a Guardian Angel with 15 res all/ 15 IAS jewel, 'Ohm' Grandfather, all of Mav's, Naj's and Trang Oul's sets, 3X Harelquin Crest, 2X Stormshield, 2X Lightsaber, the Executioner's Justice, Jade Talon, Marrowalks... and much much more.

    anyway, thanks for listening. oh yeah, i just remembered that there was 2X Arkaine's Valor in there as well. :rant:

    wow that sucks. i had to reformt my HDD a few months ago and i lost my original svaes and stashes, but luckily, about a week before, i had made a complete backup of all game saves etcthat i uploaded online (thank you geocities!) so that was safe. but i initally panicked quite a lot.
    reformatting always brings problems.

    I've lost a couple of stashes before too. Never really sure why it happens. I didn't lose any REALLY nice items like you seemed to but I sympathize =(
    I think they disappeared when I had the directory with my stashes open somewhere as well as having it open in ATMA.

    Let's see, I can replace 2x Lightsabre (1.09), Mav's set (mixed 1.09/1.10), Naj's (Both 1.09 and 1.10, I think), Trang's set (mixed 1.09/1.10), Grandfather (1.10), Jade Talon. Need anything else? Oh yeah, a Tal's armor, I'm sure I have a spare :teeth:

    Whomhead if you send me an e-mail I'll try to replace some of the Items you lost. Between me and RTB I think we can fix you up.

    RTB if you want, let me take care of the Lightsaber's and Jade Talons because I have way too many of those Items than I'll ever need. I also have an extra Narrowalks, Shako and stormshield.

    Shucks whomhead... I would like to offer my services to your "Recover whomheads Lost Itamz" foundation.

    I lost my characters once, it was due to the "Family Sibling Deletes Random Files on Your Computer Causing it to Crash" virus ;)

    Awww man, feel really sorry for ya, as I have also tried to lose all my chars...well, that was kinda because of my own sloppiness("Ok, I format the drive...now I have saved all I want right?........NO!!;)"). I can't really give ya any items, as I am just trying to find decent items for myself right now :p.

    wow guys, this really proves that the SPF is the best forum around! i truly appreciate the (astoundingly) generous offers of items RTB, Takis, nik, and jwilliams! this sort of stuff makes me proud to be a member of the best forum on the net! :worship:

    i think i am going to think of this as one of those silver-lining type of things. so i truly appreciate the offers, and the sentiment warms my heart, but i'm just gonna tough it out and find those items again for myself! :bonk: i was getting a little burned out on MFIng, and maybe this will add some of the excitement back to it... now i can actually be excited when i re-find myself a Lightsaber. :D

    SPF, you rock! :yep:

    Aww, that must suck :(

    I could give you some items too but as you said, you want to find them yourself

    You will find them again!
