Disaster on the software/hardware front!

It struck after getting a new computer.  The question was how to transfer photos and documents from my Asus to my new Macbook Pro – yes a luxury that I already love.  I have most of my photos backed up on a Toshiba external drive and needed to format my drive to be FAT or whatever, so copied the files back to my Asus…………….but instead of adding them it didn’t.  Did it overwrite the files? No and I have no idea quite what it has done.  My original files are there, well most of them but my ‘story’ I have been writing (70,000 words so far) has gone, the only copy left is from October 2013 😦

I am mortified, both my writing and my photos have gone, so much for having kept them safe on an external drive.  All my wedding photos but  thank goodness Mr Hsg has got as many as I had.  Apart from the pieces I have posted on here, with my memory problem I will never be able to rewrite what I have lost.  I thought it was safe keeping it on an external drive but no, I should have printed them all out, you can never beat paper copies.

There is no point in being upset, I have to try and continue using what is left.  I have a file with photos that I had include in my writing so can guess what I was writing about and start again.  I will never remember anything I have written without them.

Onwards and upwards.

I was diagnosed with Early Onset Alzheimer's in Dec 2012 aged 58 after 20+ years of memory and other cognitive difficulties. It was both a relief and a shock getting the diagnosis. But, I am determined to live a happy and productive life with this disease. Enjoy what I can do and push as much as I can physically, mentally and emotionally will always be my mantra :) My plan is to live simply, create a wildlife garden for birds and bees to enjoy when I can no longer garden.

Happy to hear your thoughts...
