Photo Issues...

I have so much to share with you!
There are so many fun things happening here

BUT

I have a problem...

For awhile I couldn't even talk about it
 because all I could do...

was pray and pray and pray and
give it to GOD!

My old computer had 48,000 pics...

Yes, 48,000 pics of all/many of our adoptions, birthdays,
holiday celebrations, the children's lives in China and our life in general...

I moved onto a new computer in 2014
because I could see it was moving
s...l...o...w...
real
s.....l.....o.....w.....

Things seemed to be working well
 as I used the new computer and the old computer.
But then something dreadful happened...
To make a long story short...

The old... computer... died...
along with my 48,000 pics.
Some of the pics were on my "old, old" computer
but so, so many, many more where lost.

Yes, you could use the S word when describing me...
st*pid...
And you could say...
What on earth was I thinking?
and
Why didn't I back it up?

UGH,
some of it was backed up...
but we moved and we can't find the old time machine...
I really don't understand computers...

Seriously, is this a nightmare, or what...

The old computer is being worked on now
(PLEASE PRAY)!

To top it off my new computer was having issues...

Well, the issues may have been my own issues...
I don't really understand computers!
(I may have already said that...)

I just found out I had
two mixed up photo libraries and a new camera that was dated a year ahead.
Posting became so difficult.
I couldn't find the pics and
everytime I wanted to post...
it became a
 search and rescue mission for the right pictures.

BUT,
there is hope!
(so thankful for hope!)

I am currently cleaning up the new computer!
Fixing the dates and getting the pics starting from April 2014
back in order.
And the "old" computer is being worked on...

I will be back to blogging more regularly once we get all this cleared up!
(I hope... please pray!)

Happy Mothers Day
to all of you MOTHERS!

What a joy it is to me a MOM!

I feel for you because my old computer is the same...
but last week I emptied everything on a external hard drive. it's another way to work.
You might have one just for the pictures !

I completely understand too! A month ago our 8 year old computer suddenly died and I didn't have anything backed up. Two different computer shops said it was the hard drive that was shot. Our data and photos weren't able to be recovered by either shop BUT there was a place out in California that specializes in retrieving that from hard drives. It's rather pricey but having those photos of weddings, adoptions, funerals, etc. recovered was worth it. DriveSavers Phone number 800-609-2301 or www.drivesavers.com

My computer died after two years in Australia and I willingly spent $400 to a specialist to retrieve the irreplaceable memories from that time. Backup would've been the better option. Hm, maybe I should do that now.

Dear sweet Jean -- I'm having the same problems and attempting to get photos off of my computer too! It's overwhelming, isn't it! Good luck with yours -- wish me luck with mine too!

Happy Mother's Day to you -- one of the sweetest Moms I've ever met online! :)

That sounds stressful. Pictures are so dear to us mamas. I'm hoping like crazy that you can get the pics retrieved.

I have been using an external hard drive for my pics for a few years now. I schedule time each month (scheduling time is quite a bit easier for me as I only have 4 kids!) to move the pics to the external hard drive but my fear is that something will happen to the external hard drive!
