I have the look for tragedy at this moment. I have went to go look for some old files to use but they are gone.
I’ve been keeping an archive for 12 years of my photos. They have been backed up to avoid deletion. For whatever reason, the backups are missing the folders holding all of my pictures. I have swept through my system and everything is gone.
I’m in the digital age where I rarely print a photo. My history, in the sense of being 26 – 38 has been erased.
I’ve had so many computer difficulties with my MAC this spring. Constantly running out of space forcing me to delete things I need. Apparently, I must have selected my archive as a space to delete. I cannot believe I have done that. My time machine back up has been malfunctioning.
I did computer upgrades 2 weeks ago… I must have accidentally screwed up something.
I’m almost numb with disbelief. My history is practically erased. The only saving grace is having some of the few photos on Facebook that were posted over the years.
I guess I cannot look back… well now I really can’t as there are no photos or videos. Most of Daniel and I’s photographic history is gone as well.
I will get over it but it is always nice to look back from time to time to see your path. Now all I have is my memories. I’m now 40 and I can barely remember my childhood. I cannot live in the past and refuse to… I can only look forward. I say that easily now but it will take a few days before I settle down over this issue.
