Updating from my phone here so im sorry if its all autocorrect crazy. I did a stupid stupid thing. I didnt back up my work when I moved. And lo and behold I got up from drawing two days ago to get a cup of tea and came back to a black screen and a computer that couldn't even find the hard drive. Cue the tears even though I tried not to panic.
I took my computer to a shop for data recovery and the good news is they said it looks like they should be able to recover most of it to make a back up. Dont be stupid and waste money like me. Go back your work up now! Hopefully I can pick up my data and computer tomorrow.
The bad news is that I'm still unclear if the harddrive can be useable after this.
I'm not sure how long this means I'm delayed. At the very least I have several pictures I wont be able to touch until I get the back up data. I'm testing out an older computer tonight and hopefully that works as a temp fix. At the very worst, if my data has problems or if I need to go buy a new computer I might have to be delayed a few weeks. Ill post an update as soon as I know.
Just sort of feels like life is putting too much on my plate the past 3 months! I really hate disappointing anyone. If I find out that I'm still going to be delayed significantly after tomorrow I will contact everyone waiting on pictures pictures and we can decide if you would like me to proceed with your picture after the delay or if we should cancel and refund. But putting the cart ahead of the horse right now! Cross your fingers and send good thoughts my way that my precious computer is salvageable!
AH! Thank you all so much for crossing your fingers for me! THEY WERE ABLE TO RECOVER ALL OF MY DATA!!!!! All I lost was 5 minutes of work. I am so estatic right now!
And the cherry on top, I don't have to buy a new computer! Once the data was saved the harddrive was fixable! Looks like I will be back to work Sunday! Much much better than my several weeks estimate
SO SO happy right now! Thanks again guys!
