Fry-day on my mind


Urghhh yes those are the only words i have..

In my stupid attempt to clean up files today i have made my life even harder..seems i have got a massive mess to clean up after doing some ill thought out culling and shifting of pictures..

I am shattered..so much work down the drain..i have been spending entire days trying to do this..and what do i find tonight..

Missing…missing missing..yep..the photos are there but my moronic mind has lost them in the depths of my computer..seems i have stuffed up big time!

When i look at the amount it just breaks my spirit…i have a huge job ahead to get this sorted..i had hubby helping me as he is more computer savvy than i ..but he knows nothing about Lightroom…seems i do not either…how stupid i am…i made a simple mistake and now i have thousands of pics in limbo..

I feel like the world’s biggest idiot and am on the verge of bawling my eyes out..

I really do wonder why i am even bothering when i see how little i know..back to the drawing board for me…i had posts to do and visits to make and now at quarter to one in the morning i am just going to go to bed…

Sorry for the real bummer post..i feel totally deflated and have no faith in myself at the moment..

This is what happens when you bat outside of your league 😦

  1. I send you a big hug and I wish I could cry together with you and I wish I could help you…. I bought an external drive and send all my pictures, movies and memories to nirvana instead to the external crap-thingy.

  2. If it’s any comfort, we’ve all done it (because misery loves company). An accident delete and we all hold our breaths and cry through broken hearts. But trust that it will get sorted out and who knows, the path you take to get there may be filled with all sorts of wonder and smiles. Thinking of you my friend and sending big puppy kisses. Cheer up. ❀

  3. We back up everything on to a huge external drive (not called Moby Dick for nothing) before we enter the dreaded Lightroom. Don’t worry, the photos are still there, but to find them … *sigh* Good luck.

  4. don’t be so hard on yourself!!!! We ALL have done these things!! I once tried to “experiment” by changing Cody’s blog appearance, not realizing that my old format could not be retrieved. (This was when I first started)….it was a nightmare. Like you, I was up til the wee hours of the morning (and have been with other things since). Sometimes sleep will help us to remember…..I am hoping you can restore them, but do not beat yourself if you can’t. I know they are fabulous photos (so I don’t mean to downplay the issue), but it isn’t worth taking it out on yourself!! Easy for ME to say, right? ((((hugs))) and love.

  5. Amazon have something called a Picture Keeper in various sizes. It has software that can find all jpg files on your computer and back them up. Maybe it can still find what you cannot.

  6. Oh Bev…..sorry about that – maybe after a good REST you’ll figure things out. You haven’t lost anything – just misplaced it – and I’m sure you’ll get it resolved! But you can’t operate on EMPTY all the time – you need sleep girl!!!

    Hugs, Pam

  7. Screwed up big time eh? Welcome to the “Oh _hit!” club. both peeps here belong to it. Mom’s CPU overheated and then turned to toast and the things happening here are unbelievable. I tell ya’. Mom downloaded a few pictures and they sit nicely in the file but if she calls them out…they won’t come…talk about no patience…she is hopping up and down and calling them horrible names. So you have company….you’ll never be alone while my mom and dad are around. Mom sure knows how upsetting it can be.

    Hugs and kisses Shoko

  8. Please don’t be so hard on my friend. She is a super wonderful person and, after all, she didn’t delete the photos. They are just misplaced and like everything technological, they’ll show up in some stupid place. Take a deep breath and Google it or ask the Lightroom people. You aren’t the first person to do this. β™₯

  9. Newsflash! No one is born knowing this, they have to learn. My grandparents didn’t have electricity on in Moama and here we are wrestling with technology that changes quicker than we can say “where’s my spare spindle?” You are very clever and also very hard on yourself but then if you weren’t you wouldn’t be where you are today! Just keep forging onwards! I am going to be the worlds greatest spinner but first I have to muck it up 87 million times. No will see the muck ups, just the gorgeous Felix wool. I will even use the muck ups. You will benefit from your muckups too.So glad we met. Tell Phil I want the rest of the fleece (no hurry) and I will swap it for balls. We will have beautiful wool for the rest of our lives. Yay! ❀ ❀ ❀

  10. Crikey …… it’ll be ok. Just take a bit of a break and be kind to yourself. Mum messes up BIGTIME on a DAILY basis. She’s got stuff EVERYWHERE on her computer. She’s knows it’s there somewhere and can find it all the time …… EXCEPT WHEN SHE WANTS IT!!

  11. Aw, Bev, I sure wish I had a magic wand and could make it all better for you. I’m like you when it comes to most of this techy stuff. As long as it does what I tell it, I’m okay. Any hiccup and I go crying off to lala land! But, be of good cheer! It always gets better! HUGS! πŸ˜€ ❀

  12. OHNO. BEV, I am so sorry what a confused mess I’d be sitting right there w you too. I often wonder about a more efficient filing system for my pics(that is see available) but I fear I’d be in the same state. Good luck wish I could help

  13. You are definitely *NOT* outside of your league my friend. We all have stumbles and hills to maneuver – it’s life and what we do. We overcome just like you will and barge on. As mom often says to herself, “It’s time to pull myself up by my boot straps and put my big girl panties on.” Then look at your problem in a different light. Usually by then, you might just find a solution. Sending you major hogs and snout kisses my friend. XOXO – Bacon

  14. πŸ˜‰ SEPERATED AT BIRTH my darling friend!!!!
    I lost a few files of pix a few months ago. Have no clue where they went or are on laptop.
    Then yesterday (Sunday the 19th) I was taking photos at the adoption event of kitty girl Clementine & guess what?? Lost them. Plus pix of Dharth Henry too!! Then Memory card said FULL. Turned camera off & fumed for a while.
    I turned camera back on an hour later. Had my pix of Dharth Henry & was able to take pix of the 4-3 week old bub kits & no Clementine to be found…..
    The moral of the story is: Technology is smarter than us!!! HAHAHA!
    Just do a bit at a time Bev. This sort of thing happens to all of us… πŸ˜‰
    Wish I could help you! But that would only make things worse ROFWL!
    Love you to the Moon & back, Sherri-Ellen ❀
