A Lesson Learned!
After reading many times about the importance of backing up files at least twice for safe keeping, I purchased an external hard drive wih plenty of space. Although I had planned to copy my photographs, there was always the urge to spend any spare time capturing that next shot as the idea came to mind. My computer was only a year old, how could anything go wrong I often thought. There was always the next weekend to finally put the external hard drive to use. The next weekend came and went until, yes you guessed it, the computer died! Reality came crashing in around me and the thought of hundreds of hours of time and effort being wasted do to my lack of organisation was a sickening thought. If only I had taken the time to back up my images.
Fortunately for me, the files were eventually retrieved and are now saved on two external hard drives. As the saying goes 'prevention is better than cure.'
