Well, we found out, that her hard drive was toast so she now was trying to get some of her important information off of the drive which may or may not be possible. RATS. One of the most important of all of the data on a computer these days is your photographs. So, I want to give all of you "Little Enoch Readers" a couple of tips.
Tip #1: A file is not REALLY saved unless it is in 2 places.
This means that it can be on 2 computers, or a computer and a backup drive or a computer and on the internet. If your pictures are only in 1 place, they are not truly safe.
Tip #2: I found this little video about saving your pictures on the internet so my second tip is to follow this guys advise and safe your pictures to a website. Here is the vid.
Personally, I purchased a 350 gig external hard drive that I backup to every once in a while. If one of my computers crashes, I can get it off of this other drive. After watching the video, I am now also keeping some photos on the web. Great Stuff!
