Where have my photos gone?

29 Jun

This should have been the next installment of my series of Sussex Day 2012 posts, but I turned on my PC this evening only to find my external hard drive sitting there doing nothing.

I am pretty sure that it is a power supply problem, which will hopefully be fixed in a matter of days thanks to Amazon, but it is nevertheless rather frustrating not being able to get at my photos.

It is especially frustrating because I hadn’t made a backup copy of these photos yet. I would normally have burnt a copy of them onto a DVD by now but I have been a bit lazy over the last few months.

Even if it is a complete hard drive failure then I won’t have lost anything of great significance, I have alternative backups of important stuff, so no need to panic or lose any sleep tonight.

It probably is a good reminder to make sure my backups are done on a regular basis.

    I can sympathise with your computer problem, John, as we recently found our hard drive had packed in, but fortunatlely, we had backed up twice onto two external drives. Like you I tend to get a bit lazy abut backing up and doubt if I would have done it if we were not preparing for a house move. .I hope your problem gets resolved quickly.
