Back in action, with all files (apparently) complete!
After banging my failing external HD around for a few days (yes, computer abuse -- so sue me) I was finally able to get my computer to recognize it. But only a third of the files showed up (and not my vintage file!). With the aid of GetDataBack and a fresh hard drive from Best Buy (and three more days of patience) everything is looking fine and dandy!
So let's get things going again with a fresh new look at Everett Lee Jackson, aka Cherokee, by the wonderful Pat Milo... hope you like this one, Rod!
