DISASTER!

I can tell you, my heart is broken! I thought I have saved all my photos in my external hardrive(I did a double check) before I reformat my whole laptop. But now when I'm trying to find some of the photos, it doesn't appear to be there! Why why? All my 2007 memories just vanish like that! Memories are priceless... :(

Even after I migrate to my new PC for 3 months, I still frequently has to go back to my old PC.
There is always some files which I forget to migrate over

So sorry to hear about that, kok. Are you sure there's no other way to retrieve the photos? Ask your PC technician in Miri lah, that Mr Lim (?) from ActivSolution. Maybe he can help? :)

I experienced the same thing earlier this year. I transfered all my precious files into my external hard drive but the hdd got corrupted.. all my photos.. photos taken in NZ.. the folders containing fond and memorable assignments of the yesteryears.

How sad!

wmw said...

I know how annoying it is. I lost some photos because I thought I had saved it somewhere and deleted the ones in my harddrive only to find....
That is now I upload photos onto picasa and it is not using up my hard drive. To be on the save side, always save it onto a dvd or cd when it is saved on picasa.
After exams, do try that....very time consuming if you have to start from scratch but once it is done, it is a breeze.
Take care, don't fret too much hor.

aiks u never save in cd meh....
nevermind u posted some inthe blog..find from there la

Kok said...

shionge: Nothing I can do. A long sighhh....

yenjai: Yea, sometimes we tend to forget whether we have transferred everything or not. But I remember I did double check some more...

dancing queen: I tried to use a software to retrieve the photos. Only 10% can be saved. Out of the 10%, most of them are corrupted cause the hardisk has been overwrite.

I don't think my technician able to help too. Once delete, nothing can be saved...

lynnx01: Your hardisk corrupted? Actually there are some software to get back some of the files. If you want to know, I can recommend you some.

wmw: The night when I knew the photos were missing, I couldn't sleep well. Like you said, it's just like part of my life is disappeared... How sad...

teckiee: Who else have computer problem?

xiu long bao: All photos taken in 2007 were disappeared. Although not much, I still feel something is missing. I want my photos... Yea, I did ask from my friends. They are willing to send to me. But they're no longer 1600x1200. They're 640x480. Anyway, better than nothing, right?

tummythoz: Thanks...I hope I can forget this disaster as soon as possible...

bamboo: I hope I have a dvd burner. I have too many photos to burn, cd-r is just not enough... Now I'm scared. I'll burn into dvd when my housemate's back. Need his help.

Aunty Judy: Thanks a lot for the suggestion. I think you're right. I'll just burn it into dvd. The only thing is, no dvd burner. Hopefully my housemate's able to help when he's back later...

sasha: I did save it to external hdd. But those taken 2007 still in my laptop hdd when I was trying to reformat my laptop... Blogger? Those photos are just 5% of my whole photos? I took way a lot of photos ler...

wonda said...

Wei,
Wei Wei, why are you reformating your laptop when you should be tak chek huh? I lost all my photos my PC crashed. Knows how you feel. So sayang all the effort.

Kok said...

wonda,
How come so many "wei"? My kepala also pusing. :P I was supposed to tak chek. But my laptop was giving me problem. It didn't want to start up until I gave it a couple of push on the "on and off" button.

Yaloh, so sayang. I'm trying my very best to retrieve the photos. I only managed to get back some of the "Tumbulgum Farm" photos. Others, just vanished like that. *SIGH*

Firehorse said...

I am so so sorry to hear that, I dunno know what to say wor to make you feel better wor. *Pat pat on the back*

ilene said...

KOK, oh dearie! Don't know what to say to comfort you. It's a heart ache alright. Good thing you've posted quite a lot onto your blog where you could check back from time to time. Hey, try not to think about it too much and focus on your studies. Take care!

Kleio the Muse said...

I am shocked at your loss. My heart goes out to you. Memories are priceless. *Hugs and pat Kok on the back* I am so sorry to hear that. Gosh. I don't know what else I could say of do to make you feel better. I wished I could be of help. I wanted to tell you not to be too sad, but I can't as I know it's silly to say that, when I would feel exactly like you if it happen to me.

Take care.

Kok said...

joe: I hope so. Interesting activities should be lining ahead eh?:)

Thanks a lot. I need the luck. Send me more if you have extra. haha!

meiyen: Sad, right? haih... Upload into website? I have too many photos to upload. I think more than 15gb?

teckiee: Oh, pc kept rebooting? I think the best way still, reformat the pc.

firehorse: Don't worry. I'm ok. Just need some time to leave the memories behind...Thanks a lot. :)

ilene: It's alright. I'm better compare to last few days. It's really sad to have my photos all gone. Anyway, I retrieved some of them. Better than nothing. I'll focus on my studies now. Thanks for comforting me. You too, take care!

kleio: Thanks for comforting me. Like I told ilene and firehorse, I'm getting better now. I just want to concentrate on my studies now. Hopefully I can take more great photos for the rest of the year. Thanks for comforting me. :)
