Saturday, I had one of those days…
First, while texting my son, I accidently deleted a few pictures from my phone. Right away, I usually remove the pictures that I want to keep, but I had just taken them, right? Grrrr! All hope was dashed when I found that instant upload was not turned on. <shaking head with a heavy sigh>
After a chat online with the Samsung Galaxy S III people, and a call to the AT&T store, I found that the pictures could not be retrieved. So it goes. It was my fault for not uploading and storing them immediately, but life is so busy. I lost few great photos and a precious video from one album. A hard lesson learned: take the time.
Day ain’t over yet…
After spending two hours dealing with the phone, I accidently pulled out the plug of my computer when I got up from the desk. Don't ask...it was another strange accident. I plugged in the computer and turned it back on, only to find that it wouldn’t start up. On one window, I actually saw the words: Boom Crash. Yeah, this can’t be good. As it went through all sorts of “fix it” windows, I wasn’t worried because I do use an auto back up, and I always back up my files to a stick, and external hard drive. It would be a big hassle, but my stuff was saved.
Thankfully, the computer restarted. All was well, but it really left me thinking about this world of fancy technology. We must take the precautions to make sure our work is backed up, and our photos are safe to see again.
Got any great tips on file back up and photo saving? Got any horror stories to share?
I would love to hear what you have to say on the subject!
Between you, me and the gatepost,
Coming up in future weeks:
