My computer crashed, big time, the hard drive failed and probably next week or so I’ll find out how much information I’ll be able to save and if any at all. I’m chalking it up to a complete loss and as a result I had to buy a new computer. It’s not much of a step up from the old, though it does have 200G of hard drive space. It is a big step up from the old- it has three times the processor as the old but a little less RAM.
I’ll be re-shooting the journals I have here, but many are gone and there’s no fixing that. The lesson learned here is that I should back up all my images often just in case.
