Backup Explosions!

2009 December 25
by will

Last night, something freaky happened after coming back from The Peak at night.

I copied (I should say) I cut/paste pictures out of my SD card on to my backup drive, synchronized Lightroom and some of the photos didn’t import. I completely ignored the warning. Meh! I didn’t twice about it until I started playing around with my photos. Then I realized that some of my photos weren’t there! W-T-F? But many of them were there so again, I ignore the weirdness. I left the computer on overnight and woke up this morning to look at the pictures again. Well, I tried to access that folder on my hard drive and it wasn’t accessible!

EXPLOSIONS!  :(  :(  :(

I hope my portable drive is working and it’s only a small glitch. Currently scanning the disk for bad sectors. I think I’ll have to buy a new portable drive today and back up my backup drive just in case… I would hate to LOSE ALL MY PHOTOS! That would truly suck…

Anyway, I’ll leave you with a teaser of my adventures last night.

Also, I will never cut/paste out of my SD card ever again. Always copy… always copy…

    It’s been a day and a half and the drive is still in recovery mode (scandisk). It’s nowhere near done… :(
