I’m going through my pictures and just realized I have none of them from last Halloween on this computer. So I checked my external hard drive and they aren’t on there either. Which means they are only saved to my other computer. Which has no graphics card in it so I can’t turn it on and find them.
I guess I never transferred them to the external so now I don’t have them on this computer. I was missing Easter 2011 pictures, too. I thought I just didn’t take any (Easter isn’t that big of a deal in our house) but now they might just be on the other computer that I can’t get into. Ugh.
I was sure I had EVERYTHING backed up. A couple years ago I had to do a complete system wipe and thought I backed everything up only to find out I missed the folder with Owen’s kindergarten graduation pictures in it. So now all I have of that day are 4 edited photos I uploaded to a website (and they aren’t high-res in the least). I lost all the pictures of him with his friends (kids he’ll never see again).
Now this. All I have on this computer from last Halloween are the photos I edited and saved to put online so they are small files, low-res.
