I totally feel for you Daryl (& Ray)- it happened to me & it was pretty devastating.I'm glad you recovered everything Daryl!& thanks for your take on it Ray - if we don't laugh we will just cry!
Ack.. you didn't! I don't keep my photos in iPhoto. I don't use it at all unless I'm attempting something in iMovie in which case they insist I store the particulars in iPhoto. I'm glad it all TOONed out alright. ;)
nothing more frustrating!Aloha from Waikiki :)Comfort Spiral><}}(°><°)}}><
Computers have lots of grist for the GRRR mill!
Ohh.... I can empathize with that. In NYC on the computer at my friend's place, I must have saved over 600 photos (by the time I noticed) in some weird format I could not open. NOTHING showed up. I went online and finally found something (don't remember what) that I could buy that would recover them. Then I remembered a fellow who wrote to me several times, a Serb, living in Las Vegas, who is a computer techie whiz. He recovered them....oh, boy, was I glad. In any case, I save all on an external hard drive and cds.
Tense times at the Toon house..glad you 'found' those pics!
I've suffered that particular "Mac Attack" more than once. I now use Time Capsule and a remote external hard drive. Peace at last!
Sad/Mad; not good for your blood pressure. i not familiar with i anything, I'm a PC.
You're lucky. When I lost photos last year I LOST them forever. Thankfully I had a lot of them on Flickr, but not all of them. It's a real worry. Poor Ray...
Yikes. I can imagine how much that stressed you out - and you, too, Toonman. Glad for the postscript saying all is well!
back-up baby!!I got me my flash drives and everything goes on them immediately, I trust no computer ;)glad they're all back!! Poor Toon Man, he needs a rest nowfunny - I was getting no where with Norton yesterday
Aren't you glad you had Mac tech support? :) Apple Care is one of the things that noone should be without. What do the poor PC schmucks do when they have a prob? I shared your story with my fellow employees at the store yesterday. They loved it.V
Our nearest and dearest always 'cop it' when something goes wrong. ;)
Holy hell, glad it all worked out though! Awful.
So glad the pics were recovered!!
Ray looks frazzled. So glad it all worked out. I would totally freak out if I lost all my pics.
I would have fainted. Then woke up and fainted again. Then woke up screaming and pulling out hair. Either mine, or the persons nearest to me. Or, reached through the phone line and pulled out THEIR hair.Then I might have fainted again.
Glad the photos were restored. Funny, just this morning I said to Fred that we need to invest in an external hard drive...hmmm...ESP?
