So back on our anniversary I decided to scrapbook this last year before the wedding. I did pretty well with putting November together, but then got totally sidetracked with the holidays and never got around to the December pages until just recently. Unfortunately, sometime in early January, my computer decided to “fix” some files on my memory card.
Apparently “fix” means delete the entire December folder from the SD card, and do it so well that no recovery program I tried could resurrect it. Bye-bye December photos!
Thankfully I had some photos from my cell phone and the few I’d copied from the card for blog posts, though those aren’t usually the ones I’d scrapbook. Still, we make do, right?
Eight weeks into a year of 52 doesn’t seem like all that much, but then I realize I’m up to Week 18 in my notebook and that feels like quite a ways along.
And yes I’m being much more conscientious about backing up my photos to multiple places on a much more regular basis. And I’ve ditched the one SD card that seemed to be the source of all the issues (this was not the first such incident–I have maybe 4 pictures from our Halloween party when originally there were close to 100… sigh). Learn from my mistake, folks.
At least I know we have PLENTY of pictures to choose from in January 😉
