Well … I’m depressed, in a sort of mourning period. My computer had some blue screen error issues so (it’s a Dell) I proceeded to implement a factory reset. Unfortunately, the damn thing froze during the reset’s reinstall. I restarted my machine after being in a freeze holding pattern for 13 hours. It returned to continuing the reset. Unfortunately, it didn’t keep my selected folders and files.
AND … my backup My Book external drive was corrupted by the corrupted computer so …
Every goddamn thing is gone. All my art. All my files. All my new fiction files. Everything.
One plus is that I’d uploaded almost everything to my website and AO3. And there’re the old backups for old semi-useful stuff I saved, like character backgrounds and my own Trinity story bits. I am a fucking stupid ass for not triple-checking that my files had been saved online. All I have are old backups. OLD. BACKUPS.
I am seriously depressed about this. ****seriously**** It’s like I’ve lost a child (for those who have lost a real one, my apologies and no offense intended). This stuff was/is important to me.
I now get to start over again. Yay?
