So sad...

Just have to vent a little here...the other day Ryan came home from work, went to his laptop to work on a research paper for his current class, and the computer's hard drive had CRASHED!!! I was sad for him since he had a lot of really valuable documents on there, but was happy it wasn't our main computer. Then I realized that ALL, I mean ALL of the pictures/videos of Parker's birth, hospital stay, coming home, and so on were only on HIS computer! They are GONE. It's been a couple days and I'm still so sad. I just had backed up all our other pics/videos recently but not the ones on his computer, since it is pretty new still. We've been through losing pictures before (when our moving truck was stolen) but I at least got most of my pictures back, this time they are gone. Thank goodness for blogs, all 5 pictures are better than nothing I guess.

so sorry to hear that. I am obsessive about backing stuff up we got an external hard drive that i back it all up on i hope it never crashes. think i might want to do CD's or something.

you can also store them online. FileDen and SkyDrive and many others give you tons of online storage for free and you can also keep the files private or share them. This will prevent future tragedy!

Have you taken the computer t0 the "experts"? Often, for a price - they can retrieve the un-retrievable. It might be worth the money. Even if the computer is dead, the hard drive can still often be resurrected.

DEVASTATING!!!!! We've been there too when our laptop was stolen. I'll take the warning and back up my recent photos.
