Ladies and gentlemen!! This is a Public Service Announcement!!! Please back up your photos!!!!! Somehow a few nights ago I lost my entire iPhoto application and DH spent the last 2 days running a forensic recovery program to find them. I almost lost over 15,000 photos. I now have to painstakingly search 250,000 image files and move every photo back to my iPhoto account then reformat the external hard drive and then back them up on CD and the hard drive. I know I lost some in bit transition but I think I can recover at least 95% of them, plus I recopied all the pics I have on various sites like Walgreens, Snapfish, photobucket, etc and I burned those to DVD. Total I should be able to recover 99% of what I had. I was in tears, like "I haven't cried like that ever" tears. My poor kids had no idea what to do but comfort me. DD was a sweet angel, patting my hand and told me, "It will be ok Mama". Thank God I have the smartest computer geek in the world for a husband!!!! And yes, I documented the drama of 2 computers and the hard drive hooked up for my 365 album! LOL My table was covered with 7 laptops and 3 hard drives last night, it was kind of comical. So, back up everything by the end of the year and get ready for 2010!!!!!
