Pictures Are Practically Currency In Blogging

I can't even explain to you how happy I am that I'm only working four days this week, and I am back to four days because I leave for Pensacola Saturday! Of course, I have nine million things to do before then including finding someone to take care of Weiser, but at least it will make the week fly by! Then next week will fly by while I'm home, and get me closer to having Will home. Win/win.

This weekend flew by too. Saturday morning we went to the Air Force/Army game, and it was SO fun. We had to get up super early, which was a bad idea since I had to close the store Saturday night, but still totally worth it.


Sunburned and starving, I made it to work on time, and pulled out my camera to show someone the Halloween pictures. I turned it on, and got some evil message telling me that I had to reformat my memory card or I would lose my photos. I obviously clicked 'okay' even though I knew I was probably going to lose them either way, and my biggest fear came true when 'There are no images to be viewed on this device' flashed in my face. Faaaack.

I was too tired to freak out, so I conversed with my friend Matt about the problem. He gave me the idea that I should try the SD card reader on my laptop. I did, which didn't magically unveil them like I had hoped, but I wasn't going to give up. I began googling my issue, and found the CardRecovery.com site! It allowed me to use a trial version to check and see if the files were even still on the card, and then once I had found the files, I purchased the software for $34.95!

Before you yell at me, I already had almost all of the low-res files saved on my laptop, so it wouldn't have been the end of the world, but I still wanted the option to save the 3,000 Raw files to my external hard drive. Plus, now I have the capability to recover anything, including stuff that has been deleted accidentally or intentionally from my camera, memory cards, phone, AND my flash drives.

 *Recover deleted photos from memory cards
* Recover lost photos and videos from memory cards
 *Recover photos from formatted memory cards
 *Recover photos from damaged, unreadable or defective memory cards
 *Recover pictures from removable storage including flash drives
* Recover images, video files from mobile phones

I'm not even getting compensated to tell you all of this. I just thought I should spread the word, because I know we ALL have problems like this. Pictures are practically currency in blogging, so none of us can afford to lose them. Am I right, or am I right?

Did anyone watch the Air Force/ Army game? The ESPNU camera was on us several times, so I'm curious as to whether we made it on TV ;)

I would lose my mind if I lost my pics. I try and transfer them all to my external hard drive so I don't have a lot on my phone but still!! Glad you were able to recover them!

You seem to have the worst luck with technology! I'd have been freaking out; especially without the husband around to help me figure it out. Here's to short weeks! I'm off Friday and I'm dying for my long weekend right about now.

Mallory said...

We went to the game too! It was a lot of fun but bummed Army lost. I LOVED their uniforms though!

Brittany said...

Good thing you figured out a way to get all your pictures back!! I would have been so sad.

Rachel said...

Losing pictures would be a nightmare to me! Those hold so many memories. I didn't even know there was a way to rescue them when that happens--good job figuring it out!

Jamie said...

Ahh! So glad you got them back!

Courtney B said...

No WAY! Why don't I ever think to google crap like this? I have lost so many pictures and this would have saved my sanity! I will remember this the next time I lose pictures!

Whitney @ EHFAR said...

I would've freaked out if I thought I had lost my pictures. Glad you got them back!

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

Good gracious! I'm so glad you got all your photos back! Thanks for the tidbit about this software! :)

Nicole said...

Soooooo awesome that you were able to recover them. If only I had known about this over a year ago... I had a corrupt external hard drive and lost about 45,000 photos :(

Jamie @ You Gotta Have Hart said...

So glad you got the pictures back! I totally screwed myself the other day by "moving photos" rather than "copying" them and then deleting the ones I didn't like. I was SO sad but I gave up. I might have to check this out! I'm such a photo hag!

Unfortunately, you didn't have to spend that $35 on this. There some programs that you can download that do this for free.

I'm glad you got your pictures back though! I know it really sucks when that happens.
