So, after over a month of wondering and hoping ... I found out the other day that everything that was on my work PC hard drive is lost forever. The data most likely could have been retrieved if the data on my hard drive wasn't encrypted. Encrypting the data on our machines at our company is mandatory. This means my May/June pictures are lost forever.
I do have pictures that were posted on my blog from May and June that I can retrieve, but others like
- First Mother's Day photos with two kids
- Nicholas receiving his Kindergarten diploma
- Monthly picture from June of Becca with her doggy (her growing picture)
will never be seen again (so VERY sad about this).
So, if you are someone who has hundreds (or even just a few) pictures on your PC that aren't saved anywhere else, please do yourselves a favor and add them to an external hard drive, a CD, an on-line service, or any other external service/device available so you are assured that your photos are in at least one "safe" place.
BTW ... this is the first time in seven years that I haven't saved the pictures on my camera chip before uploading to Shutterfly AND putting on a CD ... time just got away from me this time, but not anymore!
Today I'll leave you with some layouts I created from the Scraphappy site. Remember, you must join the site to get the challenges and inspiration .... to me, it is so worth it!
Enjoy your day everyone!
