    Default Lost My Floyd: Seeking HDD Trade or HDD B&P

    I lost a large of chunk of my Floyd Boots when a drive went down a while ago. Most of my stuff was on RAID at the time, but of course the bulk of the Floyd was on the drive that went down that wasn't on RAID. It is the typical story of user stupidity I have been downloading things to keep up with new releases, but I am really beginning to miss my collection of hundreds of shows to chose from.

    I am looking for someone who would be willing to load a hard drive with a decent size collection of Water's era Floyd audio boots in FLAC. I am hoping to avoid having to download again show by show.

    I have some nice large Led Zeppelin (441GB) and Hendrix (93GB) vines from Traders Den members that I could put on a drive along with various other classic rock boots and ship with prepaid return postage for someone to load up with Floyd boots.

    Alternatively, for someone who is a long standing member here I would consider a B&P and send you two drives to get one back - but I would want to understand a little more what I am getting in this situation.

    Lastly, I am in the Chicagoland area. If someone nearby could hook me up that would be the best. Happy to arrange either a trade or provide "blanks" in the form of a hard drive locally and save on shipping.

    adding to nils' proposal, and being interested in your zep and hendrix, and also living in Germany, i could offer my HD content as well, the idea being, you sending the HD to him first, him filling it up with whatever you need (i think it would be easier to just do all, and not start cherry picking) then pass it on to me, me removing the Zep and hendrix stuff (assuming it is a copy from what you have and not your only source, lol) and putting it onto my HD. then comparing whatever PF is on the disk as put there by nils and filling any gaps i could fill?
    my floyd HD (also having lost a bit 2 yrs ago) is:1,61TB
    my DG share:293,8GB
    my RW share:1,03TB (and no, i am more of a DG fan, not sure how this happened, lol)
    NM: got some but cannot find it...
    ...any Floyd, is good floyd....

    Send me a PM. I'm sure we can work something out. Plus, I'm in the States and it looks like you are in Chicago.

    depends on your offer i guess?
    assuming you have more than i have to offer? then yes, it would make sense to remain stateside, if not...

    No disrespect intended. I'm sure you have more than I do, so you bring up a good point. I was just thinking of time and expense of shipping, honestly, content never occurred to me.

    Thank you all for the kind offers. I got a PM before the responses here and looks like I am set.

    As to the folks in Germany, I have a few spare drives now as the failure prompted some upgrades and would be willing to get a vine going with LZ and Hendrix stuff - meaning I ship it to one of you and you keep paying it forward if there is interest. I wasn't clear if Nils is interested in the files or just helping out. So if Nils & Pottel want to respond I could set up a separate thread if more than one person is interested in DE, otherwise I can connect with Pottel directly.
