My computer is doing fine so far had to order reinstall cd's then wait for them to be delivered then had to install my windows all over again. Then I had to reinstall all my programs ect. I'm almost finished installing everything and putting my computer back to it's old self. I did lose a few pictures I can't replaces tho. :(

I feel for you about the pictures. In 2003 we completely lost a hard drive that had hundreds of irreplaceable photos on it. I still feel kind of sad about it sometimes, but it was also my fault for not backing up those pictures a lot sooner, like I should have done :/ I just tend to go along thinking like our hard drives will never give out.. but I know now that they certainly can. Gah *laugh*

I thought I had them burned but they weren't. I did a few burns then the burn ROM stopped working :(. I saved what I could my sister had copies of alot of the pictures so I went to her house to get copies of them. Yes I also have learned a lesson of backing things up for sure. I put what I could on my external hard drive but it is only a 50GB. I did get to do a few burns but not alot before that went down. The pictures I miss the most.

Man, I hate it when that happens. I keep saying I am going to back up my files more often but I never do. Sorry that you lost all your pictures

Starlady, I hope you will back up everything from now on so you don't lose your pictures again!
