Oh...Crap.
« on: October 16, 2006, 08:03:19 PM »

I suppose this is more of a plea than anything else, but somehow I've managed to delete the folder containing ALL of my rifftrax files. 

Could there be anyway I can get these files back, pretty please?

You might be able to use an "undelete" program. But my experience with these proggies is that they don't work as well as I had hoped  :(

Do you have your receipts? Or perhaps you can email RiffTrax a screen shot of your PayPal history to prove that you've paid for them. I'm sure the fine folks at RiffTrax are eager help out.

I'm sure with recepts and a GIANT dose of begging <wink> a mod could get you fresh copies.

Or better yet, support Rifftrax and buy another copy :)

definately contact a mod and see if they'll be nice.  They're definately lenient on this sort of thing.  However, I recommend that people do what I do.  Archive your rifftrax to a flash disc or burn them on a CD-R/RW.  Rifftrax's download rules are annoyingly strict.  They're probably trying to save on bandwidth more than anything.  The 3 downloads and 72 hour rule don't do anything to prevent pirating.

I'm sure if you can provide receipts, anything is possible.

Just to let you know: I contacted the support team, and they sent me all my Rifftrax for free.

Suckers!   ;D

Just kidding.  I hence proclaim myself a Rifftrax Support Team Supporter!

Cool, do you get a badge or something with that on?
In brightest day, in darkest night
No DVD shall escape their sight
Let those who tremble in bad movies light,
Beware the power, Rifftrax's might!
