Just when things were going smoothly, my bad luck catches with me again...
A couple of days ago, i was awfully tired because of work. I was using my laptop and then i fell asleep with my laptop on my belly.
Then... it happened. The laptop fell hard on the floor, while the hard drive was working. You know what that means? Yep, hard drive dead.
Over 500 gigabytes of photos, documents, important files, pending drawings, etc.... all lost in a single moment. All lost just for a simple yet increidble stupid mistake ¬¬.
I know what you may be thinking right know? "How is that you didn't have a backup???" Things is... i had. Before this happened (like a week before), i had to format my external hard drive (which stored my backup). Then, i only had to copy the original files into my formated external hard drive again..... BUT I DIDN'T DO IT. I kept saying "I'll do it soon".
Well, too late my friend... >_<
I have two options now... just let it go and start over or try to recover my lost data sending my hard drive for repair. Bad thing is, the repairment fee is almost 1000 USD.
I think i'm gonna have to assume i'd lost the data. Right now, i can afford such a high price with all the expenses i must do nowadays.
I lost a lot of videos, music and other things but that can be recovered easily. That's not the problem. What hurts me the most is losing my personal pictures with family, friends and other people, documents with important info and some of my drawings. I was hoping to upload many drawing these months, i even had an about finished illustration that i was kinda proud of. But it's gone now :/
But oh well..... i'll just have to start over now. I hope to redo some of the lost drawings but dunno if i'll be able to replicate them. Let's hope for the best
A word of advice for you..... MAKE BACKUPS OF YOUR IMPORTANT FILES BEFORE YOU REGRET IT.
Now, if you excuse me... i'm gonna splat my head against the wall. See ya!
