All My Photos Are Gone!! part 3
Friday, May 18, 2007

Ok,here's the new lowdown. I recovered about 160 pics yesterday ( including my file of saved Mike Phillips images) and now have them copied to cd and most uploaded to my bucket.

The laptop was extremely slow all day, had a 2" grey bar at the bottom of my browser, and if I closed Firefox to search my C drive, I had to restart to get firefox back up.

Last nite I re-downloaded firefox, upon restarting it got rid of the grey bar and now there is no need for fasterfox! I now see red underlines for misspelled words, even here, how cool is that!

Also last night I found a file with all of my pic files listed- lost and new. When I try to open with Windows pix viewer, it says no preview available. Now each folder has a listing for last activity and how big the file is. Anybody know why it would say file size if there was nothing there?

I found, but haven't downloaded yet, a digital recovery program called Recuva. It's by the same people that make Crap Cleaner, which I love. Does anybody have any experience with it?

Thanks again for all the shiny browncoat support!

The list, I think, is a directory of all the shortcuts but without the final destination for the computer to arrive at to get the desired information. I have a similar problem with 3 files in my documents directory where I have the file shortcuts but no files to go to:(

Hey, I'm glad you've gotten some things back and cleanup is progressing. Sorry I can't give you any tips or be a voice of experience on Recuvra, tho.
