I am so incredibly screwed...

I've been hard at work on website stuff today and suddenly my harddrive died. Not the enclosure or the power source, the harddrive itself crashed, all 250 GB worth.

Everything was on there - All of my websites, my writings, 4200+ mp3 files, every image and screencap and texture and icon. I can't even begin to describe how bad it is and how sick I feel because of it.

Luckily, I didn't erase all of the files from the server, so I can redownload them and start that part of the process over, but it's days, weeks, worth of work gone. I am more worked up about everything else - everything gone.

I used it as my back up - literally, I had a folder named backup with a section for programs, e-mail, graphics settings, etc. My relatively new computer has no capacity for writing cds or dvds. The newest cd backup that I have are from 04 Jan 06 - 18 months ago.

Oh, God. I am so very, very, very, very screwed.

Computer Issues

My computer is messing up and I don't know why. It's acting like it has a virus. It's moving very, very slow, and CPU usage is at 100%, even when I shut most of my programs down. McAfee says the computer is clean, and I've run AdAware 4 times. Help?

(After I used Adaware last night, it was running fine when I first got on-line this am. I think it's e-mail related. Yesterday and today, I had a large e-mail which wouldn't download, timing out the server. I went to my webmail and deleted it from there, unread. Both days, my problems seem to occur just after. I think the attachment is getting caught up in McAfee, and not downloading, but something is onviously getting through that McAfee doesn't recognize.)
