    A member here offered to help in trying to restore the drive and/or retrieve the files.

    I already made this mistake before. Did I learn my lesson? No. Will I? Who knows.

    Yeah, I know this is stupid and risky, luckily I didn't lose much of my assets. Will definitely backup everything soon.
