HS and HL you can get again and setup. For the games however make sure you continue that conversation in the gold section.

Have you tried to recover the hard drive at all? What type of failure did you experience?

Getting a subscription would enable you to get the artwork and videos again fairly quickly. Games would take a little more time, but shouldn't be to bad. HL has had a pretty big update recently so worth it as you'd be getting that too.

I'll bet $10 it was a Toshiba drive. Literally 90% of the time I've had to to replace a HDD, it's been a failed Toshiba. Also THK is right - you must do backups! They will make your life ten times easier when a drive inevitably fails. There are many different automatic backup solutions. I use Cygwin + rsync to another machine. If you don't want anything fancy you can always just do a copy-paste every once in a while. Do a Google!

Sorry to say but short of HyperSync, there isn't an easy one-click solution to your problem. If you need any specific files, I would be glad to contribute (just don't ask me to upload any PS1 games lol).

If you send me an external drive, I will be happy to give you what I have. This happened to me in the past. I can relate

replace drive once a year! i still have data from 20+ years ago pictures etc never use burnable discs after 10 years they tend to biodegrade

but as you start to hear a whir sound in the drive is about to pack up! or data corruption starts time to replace fast!

I do the clunky way of backing up by pasting and replacing to my Synology network drive like once a week since I'm always working on stuff and updating. So after you get everything set up again, which you're gonna have to do a lot of manual work: get yourself a decent NAS or external drive enclosure plus a reliable HDD like a Western Digital Red. They work perfectly for backup storage (even streaming videos too) and are very reliable.
