The unexpected happens...

You must wonder where I am.
I wonder that as well sometimes.
Here is the short version.
I dropped my laptop on the tile floor causing the hard drive to hate me.
The laptop was put on full life support but has yet to breathe on its own.
I have not allowed myself to think of life without all the pictures and documents it held.
No. I did not back anything up.
I always intended to, but hey my laptop worked great!
No plan of dropping it was in my mind.
The grief will set in later.
The 6000 or so photos I had will be missed.

Back up your stuff people.
And don't try to blog from a tablet.
After this I won't either.
I'll be back when I can steal a new computer.

Yours truly,
Photobucket

Uhhh, can't hubby do something? Even people can live without a heart at times, but they have to have other support. Can the hard drive be removed and put in another to get stuff from it (you can tell I am NOT real techy) On another note? have you heard of "drop box"? I have photos stored up there in outer space, somewhere (waving). You can get an account for free. If you do decide to use it, mention that you were referred to by me
So sorry, this is not a good time.

Try taking it in. We had the hard drive crash on our computer and at a repair place they were able to retrieve the contents and put on a separate external drive.
Good luck!

So sorry!! What a major bummer. I do an online back up and a cd back up once a month for pictures just because I lost some not too long ago. It is so sad when you can't retrieve them. Hope for the best outcome!
