FUUUUCK BESTBUY!

I bought a new computer from them since my last one died and they said for $100, they could transfer my memory to an external hard drive from my old computer. I took them up on it because I lost some really important work on my dissertation. I said put the documents on there first, and if there is room on the external, add pictures and my music too. In order to take the hard drive home and check everything out on my computer, I had to sign this thing saying I was satisfied with the repairs that were done (before I actually see what was done). I get home, and they transferred shit loads of things I didn't care for, and absent is the dissertation stuff, which is the only reason I paid $100 in the first place. To boot, the most recently added songs from my old computer that they put on my external were from May of last year, which were already backed up anyway, so pointless. I'm bringing everything back tomorrow, hoping to either get a refund or see if they can try again and get me the shit I actually wanted my $100 to save. I'm afraid that since I signed that bogus contract, I won't be getting a refund since they will say "Well we transferred everything we could."

1. Couldn't you just open the case and swap harddrives.

2. Couldn't you connect both harddrives to the same computer and transfer the files.

3. Couldn't you just buy an external harddrive, put the files on there, and then transfer it to your new computer.

4. Couldn't you buy USB drive, put as many files as you can, put it on the new computer, format it, repeat, until you get all the files you wanted.

Dr Ruth is tiny. Real tiny.


Don't **** with that gas station stuff, I tried StaminaRX one time when the anxiety medication I was taking ****ed with my libido. It got me up all right, but it wasn't worth the plummeting blood pressure, vomiting, blurred vision and cold sweats.


OP, pound back a few shots, listen to this a couple of times, then rub one out. You'll feel better in the morning.

Exactly, F Bestbuy. Shit customer service, unhelpful employees, just a rip off in general. There's a reason why they;re going downhill. And why would you pay someone 100 bucks just to transfer files to an external Hard Drive? That's really easy, no reason you can't do it yourself.

This is prob the reason why dude has so many problems: he can't even transfer simple files to another harddrive . What a loser. What's even more sad is his d*ck is not even working on top of that.

What's the issue with your kidneys?

I think I may be having kidney problems starting to develop but am not sure. What were the warning symptoms for you?

Godspeed to you, man.

You must have missed the part that my computer was f*cked. I can transfer info on working computers no problem, but I couldn't get my computer to open windows, and the computer would restart after being on for 1 minute. I handed my computer to some of my buddies who are way better with computer (they're webpage designers), and they were the ones that told me that the info could still be transferred, but it required additional equipment that neither I nor them had.

I brought my computer back to Bestbuy and they are going to see if the files just weren't transferred or if they were unable to transfer them due to corruption. Now I cross my fingers.

See that is when you go on ISH and post this kind of sh*t so a Linux guy like me can walk you through it instead of wasting $100 on a piece of crap service that couldn't even get your sh*t right.

You could of dual boot with Linux, jump into windows, grab all the stuff you needed and transfer it that way. *Tsk tsk .. fail.

Godspeed to you, man.

I have a kidney disease called IgA Nephropathy, which was discovered almost 10 years ago and led to needing a kidney transplant last summer. I discovered it after going to the hospital for an unrelated incident and my blood pressure was 200/133. Blood pressure and kidney issues are strongly related, so they looked into kidney problems and discovered it. I felt no symptoms at that point, but the closer I was to full blown kidney failure, the more symptoms that started up: Mostly fatigue and twitching legs/restless leg syndrome when I got sleepy.

What makes you think you have kidney problems? And if you think you have kidney problems, I would see a doctor. They are no joke.

What makes you think you have kidney problems? And if you think you have kidney problems, I would see a doctor. They are no joke.

Sometimes I think I feel odd sensations in my kidney area like a kidney stone is forming or something. It could just be oblique pain. And, every now and then, my skin on my stomach will inexplicably break out in little red spots everywhere. But they go away.

I could be having some sort of filtration issues in my liver or kidneys.

What do you think caused your kidney issues? Was it genetic or did some behaviors/habits bring them on?

That is a very different issue than what I have, so I don't know what to tell you.

They don't know what causes my disease. They are pretty sure it isn't something I did, and it is only barely correlated with heredity in studies (I have no family members that also have it).

Really to grab files.

Holy sh*t your friend must be a horrible computer guy if he can't grab a simple file.

I doubt he was using Linux; with that interface, you can grab files that you have formatted ever since you got that computer, heck you can even go on your friends computer and dig up what naked past he has hidden if you know the correct way to use the remote and terminal. I bet your friend was using a sh*tty Iphone to try to remote dig those files. Be honest.
