BIG problem! No photo today, Nor probably for quite a while. Let me explain.
My pc was running very slow. When I checked it out, I found that I was saving over 3000 RAW files on the hard drive. So about 6 months ago, I bought an external hard drive and transferred all the photos onto it. Then, as I shot, I would transfer directly from the camera, through my laptop, to the external drive. Last night I disconnected the hard drive as I always do. And when I went to plug it into Lightroom to work on a photo, the drive was corrupted. Unusable. Almost 4,000 photos dating back to 2009, destroyed. Or are they? I have the hard drive at the computer store now and he will call soon to let me know if anything can be salvaged and, if so, how much it will cost. Oh, wait! I have some photos on my phone. Let me see if anything is appropriate for “BIG”!
