You know what they say "It's not a question of if but when?" I have had a redundant backup system for my files for a few years now. I have a 3TB desktop drive and a 2TB portable that I back each other up to. I recently upgraded my computers HD and needed to create a mirror image of the old HD. So in a moment of weakness I formated the external desktop HD put my mirror image on that and went to work, My portable HD, which was now my only copy of everything, had a problem and all of my pictures are gone. I called Transcend and the gave me the recovery software and I ran it and recovered over 300,000 files. set up in 635 recup_dir files. When I called them they said I had to sort through them to find what I need. I looked at my now confused LR and it says there are almost 64,000 pictures missing, not really a pin in a haystack, but as close as I ever want to be to that. Anyone have an idea or experience on the best way to go about this? I'm hurting... LOL
Hello, nice of you to send me a message. But I think maybe I didn't
explain it right. All of my pictures were on an external hard drive that
failed. So I called the Transcend tech and they gave me the software to
retrieve the files, In fact it retrieved 370,000 files, and I have to sort
through them to fins them the place them back into folders so that I can
recreate my LR catalog.
Once again thank you so much for reaching out and have a wonderful day!
