Last news about my crash...Grethe
« on: January 16, 2018, 02:22:48 pm »
It was not possible to save anything from the crashed disk! I'm a little sad, but I've looked into my backup external disks, and I've a lot there. But I have lost everything we did in AD and AP for the last 3-4 months. The brushes, styles etc within the apps I have, but I will export it to backup. So I really have a lot of work to do.
I'm a little upset and tired, bedtime passed, but not sure I will sleep well tonight.

Lesson learned, take backup more often!

Good night!

Thank you Nicky and Teejay! :flowersmile:
What I miss that can not be restored, is my working files in AD and AP. The challenges I can find here, and I have a lot backup, but didn't do it for some months..... :dunno2: :pullhair:
So now I've a lot work to do, moving the stuff on external disks to my computer.........

Sorry to hear this Grethe. It's an awful thing to happen. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

A similar thing happened to me last year when my pc got stuck in a loop after doing a system restore. I lost everything and had to reinstall Windows, programmes etc and it was very much a case of starting from scratch. It was horrible.

Grethe you will make sure you back up all the time now.  I have my external drive set so  it backs up every day.

Grethe, you could re-do the projects and get your work back.  That's  lot to do but also good experience.  I do have most of the PI stuff and if you can remember what was what, I can send them to you.   You could also install PI and you'd have all the backgrounds.  You would get the following files:

Find a need and fill it!  . . .

 :yes01: :yes01: :yes01:  We still have all the goodies!!!   A lot are in .ufo format but that's easy enough to change it to .png if you just open it and re-save it.  PI has a lot of really great textures and such.  Glad you were able to sleep!!! :laugh1: :woof: :tada:
