HDD dead, lost everything...able to recover project from .pak ?!
A few days ago my HDD decided to die overnight, and needless to say I didn't have a backup, because I'm smart like that... Good news is, I have an older version of the game that I installed on a laptop to test for performance. Now my question is..is there a way to recover my project back from the .pak file ?! I tried googling around and found a few topics where they mentioned that you might be able to...but how, no idea. I'd rather not throw away 2 months of hard work, so if there's any way to recover my project..

Resources is still better than nothing I guess, I'll still look around and see if there's another way..but not getting my hopes up, thanks tho.
@eXi Yeah, it won't even start sadly and I can hear a worrying noise inside when I shake it..I might be able to send it to a service or something, but I'm a student so I can't afford to recover the files, and even that is not a guarantee, so yeah..lesson learned.
Have you already tried to use recover the HDD? I mean, there are awesome tools around the net, that can recover nearly everything.
Or does the HDD not even start? Have you tried using it external?
I can't help you with the .pak file though :/
