They are slowly coming back (but nothing there worth mentioning, yet). I still haven't put all my content back, so need to do that over the weekend (it takes a very long time to transfer on my system, for some reason; plus, it sort of times out if ignored while plugged in too long and I have to yank the USB and plug it back in again for the drive to be accessible).
