On of my hard drives with all of my pictures dating 6 months back french kissed the floor a few days ago, no backup of course, and it shows very little signs of life. I’ve tried the freezer trick a few times, but it still makes that cracking sound. I’ll give it another shot tonight, I’ve read a lot of people have made miracle HDD-resurrections using that method – otherwise I’ll need to send it away for some hardcore recovery, and it won’t be cheap. I spoke to a woman at a revocery company yesterday and she told me it will cost me around €1000 to recover all the data. Just what I need (well, don’t we always?). I’m just really glad I delivered all the assignment photos before the fatal incident, otherwise I would have been f***ed for real this time. DON’T FORGET TO BACKUP, KIDS!
So. In lack of better things to post, here’s a picture I took on August 26th 2004. Back in the days when I just bought my first DSLR camera – a Canon 300D. Well above 100.000 exposures, and it’s still functioning very well to this day. I gave the camera up for adoption last year, and it has now found a new home with my parents – the only thing that’s not working is the flash, but who needs that piece of crap on-camera flash anyways?
