Oh... I Hate That Feeling...

You guys will not believe what I just did. I go to upload some wonderful(ish) photos of the bagel awesomeness that I promised to share with you, and lo and behold I manage to delete my entire "Pictures" folder. All 1200-odd files. Poof. Thank God for the power of restore software... now I just have to wait another 15-20 minutes to resave everything! Not to mention the oh-so-fun amount of time it'll take to re-organize everything. I will preserve, though - never fear! I can think of it as a kind of "Spring Cleaning". I had been meaning to organize that thing for 6 months now!

The worst part about it is that I also lost the photos I just uploaded... including the shots of my friend's birthday cake and the cupcakes I just made! Thankfully everything is safe and sound (for now) on Flickr... but that cake was so pretty! You'll have to forgive me for posting the recipes sans photo a little later on... they really are winners.

So, fingers crossed for bagels tomorrow!

How awful! But at least you were aware of the existence of "restore software"--I would have just assumed they were lost forever! Good luck getting them all back.

ARGH! I hate it when things like that happen (I empathize, my computer recently deleted an entire folder of installers that I needed, except I couldn't recover them because they were on an external hard drive :( ).

Good luck with the reorganization!

Hope they all come back! Glad you have a backup!
