My computer was acting kind of flaky, so I restarted it. Soon after, I was waiting at POST. It normally takes about two seconds, but today it decided to take a bit longer due to a dead hard drive.
It took me about an hour and a half to go to the store and pickup a new drive. Amazingly I was able to reinstall Windows 8, Office 2013, Visual Studio 2012, and the SQL Management Studio 2008 in about 45 minutes.
I turned file history on, pointed it to my history drive, and restored about 16gb of my documents in about 4 minutes.
Thank you File History Team.
