Hard Disk Failure

Unfortunately, my main hard disk in my desktop workstation has died. I was going to post some gwbasic code this week, but have unfortunately lost the little bit of work I had prepared. Fortunately I haven’t suffered any major loss of data, and should be able to restore most of my data from a recent backup. I’m attempting to rescue what I can using ddrescue but so far it’s not looking good. I’m currently still able to work from my macbook so I will try to get the code tidied up a bit to post here. Programming in gwbasic on a macbook in dosbox has it’s problems as there is no break key in order to stop a program.
