I maybe have the hopes of recovering the content of my External Hard Drive. Though, how much of it can be recovered is still unknown. But the fact that some (maybe most or even all) can be recovered without calling a tech guy, or sending it to a tech guy, or paying for software makes me very happy!

When I first found out that my external hard drive was malfunctioning a lot went through my mind.

* what's going to happen to my photographs (these include photographs of family members, family parties, trips I have taken over the past couple of years, celebrity meetings)

* what's going to happen to my video files (I had a large collection which took me the best part of 2008-2010 to collect)

* how long is it going to take me to get my video files back

* what's going to happen to my graphics resources (again, a large collection was had which was collected over the better part of 2008-2010)

* how long is it going to take me to get the resources back

* what about my graphics for the Secret Valentines Challenge at [livejournal.com profile] crimeland (what I had wasn't as much as I had originally planned to have done by now, but because of this, I am glad about that because it would have meant more was lost and devastation would have been worse)

I have had 2 different recovery programs running since 11am this morning - 1 of them is at the stage of scanning/sorting the files out only it is still going through my music (though because I was out during the day today, I have no idea if it started with my videos, music or images) this appears to be recovering as it sorts. The second program is also still scanning/sorting the files out, but it says it has approximately 3 hours left of the stage it is at, and I don't know what stage comes next.

My reason for running two at once was because I have more chance of them recovering more files as some programs are set to only recover certain types of files (such as image files or music files)

After figuring out what is able to be recovered/what has been recovered I will possibly have to make a list of things I need to recollect again. Though with a great thank you to many people from Team Morgan, I am able to start that collection now (mostly for the Secret Valentine Challenge at [livejournal.com profile] crimeland) so maybe I won't have much more to collect after that. I do know that although I will be using other people's screen caps for the time being, I will need to recapture my own screen caps - but with my new program, it should take me a lot less time that it originally did!

But it's not so random really.

I am aware that I have had an offer off [livejournal.com profile] tiah15 for a layout and stuff, but I have been informed that it will take longer for her to do one for me.

I am still going to use the one she makes for me, when she gets the chance to make it, but I am getting sick of my boring (compared to many many others I have seen around)and was wondering if anybody else could make me one too - that way I can keep things fresh and randomly change them :D

I am also aware that the majority of the people on my friends list are currently very busy with the Secret Valentines challenge, so I will be willing to wait until after that challenge is over, with it being such a large challenge.

Thank you and sorry to anybody for the inconvenience this may have caused
