So here in Connecticut we had an extremely windy day today and the power cut out twice over a span of 15 seconds. After it rebooted i was surprised to find that the hard disk was completely empty. I checked all the other custom settings I placed and they were still intact. Then I checked hard disk diagnostics and found that there were no reported errors and everything was completely fine. My theory to what happened is this. During the reboot cycle after the first power outage there was an interruption from the second power outage and something happened. What exactly happened I have no idea but maybe it was some sort of unexpected glitch or bug. I rechecked the dvr to make sure everything else worked fine and found nothing wrong. By the way I was an early adopter of this dvr and had it since early 2009. There were a couple power failures each summer but never was the dvr affected this way. I don't care that the shows were deleted because all the good ones ended a couple weeks ago anyway and the only stuff I had on it was reality crap. If anyone else experienced this or knows why this happened please post. Thanks.
