Well, it looks like the old studio computer is DEAD.
The hard drive isn’t really the problem after all.
It is the motherboard that is fucked-up.
So, I guess we need to replace the computer altogether.
I will be looking around for a decent system compatible with our other hardware/software.
We will be working with what gear we have left and try to have some new material ready to record by the time we replace the computer (whenever THAT is).
