Harddisk crash, again...

Oh no, it happened again, my harddisk crashed last weekend! I didn't expect this to happened again, my laptop is less than one year old...
You should think that I learned from my previous crash, but I'm afraid I didn't. I don't take back-up regulary... I bought a lot of stuff during NSD and it is all gone now...
My photo's from my weekend trip to Dubrovnik 2 weeks ago, gone...
My recent LO's and everything I have created lately is all gone...
I feel so silly, but I never expected this to happened to me twice in less than a year!!!


  1. oh my goodness....I KNOW EXACTLY HOW YOU FEEL...IT SUX...i LOST OVER 500 GIGS OF PHOTOS AND KITS....lost more the 5000 photos of my grandchildren....and thousands and thousands of clip art I made for my collage art work(because of this I had no heart left for my art and I so I started to digi scrap) I do...Well I now back up to 3 different online servers(2 free and one for 20 bucks a year)...maybe you can retrieve some of your photos...there are some free to try programs...worth a shot..hope you have a better week end

  2. So sorry to hear that happen! Its one of the things I am so paranoid about, so I backup twice a week anything new onto two usb/external hard drives, because I'm scared they may break down too! Plus I burn onto cds as well. (probably overcautious).
    There are computer techs out there that can retrieve data off a broken hard drive - but not all can. My mother in law's motherboard went, but the computer tech was able to retrieve her photos for her.
    Good luck!

  3. So sorry to hear this! That is a bummer! I always develop my photos and I upload some on my blog or Webshots so I won't go crazy if I lose them on my PC.

  4. My heart goes out to you. I hope you are able to recover some of the HD. I have been collecting your templates if you need any of them.

  5. I am so sorry! I, too, had two hard drive failures about one year apart - I'm pretty paranoid now. I lost quite a bit of work, and all our photos from a trip from Oregon to Arizona, photos of Zion Nat'l Park in January with snow and ice - and photos of dear friends I hadn't seen for 30 years. I feel your pain.
