It’s hard to believe after the last time, I would put myself back in a position to lose my data- but I did! Hard drive crashed on photo drive only this time it also has all my scanned documents (which is everything- music, bills, receipts, recipes). I am trying to do a recovery only this time I will create a system that hopefully will prevent this from happening again. See article: https://www.slrlounge.com/271896-2/.
I was using a cloud system but they quit doing home and now only do business which is way more expensive and they also started to limit how much data you could store- pictures are a lot of data.
I have a partial backup- was getting ready to make a new updated backup when it crashed- I lost my wedding, Silvie and today I am sad- say a prayer I can recover most of it- will let you know.
Update: Recovered and rebuilt- still have a few folders to work on but pretty much done. Was in the process of cleaning all my drives and have found many photos, double checking to make sure I have them in the right places- Thanking the God Lord for small miracles. Now I just have to implement the new back up system.
