... is a lesson shared!
Regular readers of these forums will already be aware that this contributor recently lost a hard disk. In fact much more than that, I lost some video footage of a recently departed family member. I also lost all my prep work for the competition and was unable to enter.
The good news is that I sent my crashed disk to one of those Data Recovery experts. Thankully they managed to recover my data, including those all important video clips. It cost me a few pounds (sterling) though!
All of this because I forgot to back up a few files. Please learn from my mistake. Backup regularly. And if its video, only use your DV Tapes once, that way you will always be able to get back to where you started.
I am happy again
