Retrieving My Photographs
January 31, 2017 8:55am CST
When my desk top computer died I thought I had lost many photos. My husband had transferred all of our data and most photos to a separate hard drive. Until now I thought missing photographs had gone for good. The old drive was damaged but has now been repaired by a friend. I now have lots of images that I had forgotten about. I need to sort them all properly into relevant directories. One of the photos I couldn't find was of wooden figures of 'Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs' made by my late father. He didn't get the colouring quite right on them but they are amongst my favourites. Now I don't have to photograph them again. I have shared it at the top of this post. It's a gloomy day here in the UK so I haven't felt like going out. I shall do some mylotting for a while and then get back to my photos. Hope you are all having a good day.

Some directories disappeared last May. I didn't think I had posted this pic on here due to it going missing. There were a few more examples of his paintings on a missing directory. I did write a tribute to my dad early last year. I'll go back and have a look. I have all sorts of travel pics back too which is a relief.

I needed a new hard drive last summer. The store was able to retrieve all my photos, thank goodness and also put them on another pricey contraption that we bought. Glad you still have your photos. Losing them would be my worst fear. Did your dad work for Disney?

If the hard drive is now working again then it cannot have been damaged. Whatever the problem was must have been software related and not physical, most likely corrupted operating system files. In such a situation data could be retrieved from the hard drive by using a live boot disk.
