Ya … that didn’t went well.
At least I guess we know who the culprit is in the scenario: Must be the fuggn mobo! Because guess wot, both our external HDDs are empty, totally devoided of files and nada on them! 😮 Fuuuk, know what that means? All my digital photos I made since 2003 or so are gone, hubby’s and mine whole datalifes deleted, all our movies also poofed. Ok, that movie purge wasn’t the first time, and we were just busy repopulating the platter anyway, so we didn’t lose too much there. But the rest is gone, probably forever. This feels so crap. :.(
Ok, plan of action: First thing
tomorrow monday morning, call the computer repair lesbian, cry a bit and ask her what and how much of our data she’ll be able to restore from the external hard drives and if she can save the unholy mobo … or sell me a cheapo but gud new (four generations old) one. Gigabyte warrantee is over by now anyway, so repair or new it is.
And guess what else unhappy thoughts are popping up in my mind? Maybe a cloud storage solution ain’t that bad afterall. At least as emergency data vault.
And the question what system to install on my good computer isn’t valid anymore. I won’t touch that thing until repair lesbian has checked and maybe saved it. I’m typing this now on Gaga, which is powered by LMDE3 as it so happens. My lifesaver was already installed! Lucky me. 🙂
