The day when two years plus of memories crashed on me! 😭
I am still trying to revive/ recover it hopefully~ It’s a huge deal for bad memory me… 🤦🏻♀️
On the bright side, luckily I wasn’t diligent enough to finish uploading all I wanted to post and also clearing my phone so I still have some left! 😅 However, everything taken with my camera are gone. 😭
For this to happen to me, it’s really unexpected. Not because I didn’t think that I would be that “lucky” but purely because I always try to do double back up.
Yet for this, I didn’t. Why?
Because this hdd is relatively new. Not new enough to be within warranty but I didn’t even manage to fill up one-third of the 1TB storage space.
Usually, I will leave a copy in my laptop. Do a backup on a external hdd so in case of anything I still have one. But as space started to run out on my “not so young” laptop (I think she will be petty if she hears the word old…😬), I could only backup on my hdd.
When I got a second hdd, I backed up everything on my first hdd in my second.
This is my third one and I got it because I was running out of space on the second. I had some of my second one backed up on my third but didn’t have the ones only in third, backed up anywhere.
I did think of it but all I could think about recently was to back up my iphone before I do a massive update.
Not trying to blame it on the brands or anything but my first two hdd are still going strong and they are WD.
This is my first Seagate hdd and a year plus, it’s gone. By the way, I tried Seagate testing tools and recovery tool, totally can’t detect my drive.
So my plan to update my iphone has been halted but I still need to do so soon, if not I won’t have any more space to take any photos or videos this coming Saturday.
Oh! Another thing I am glad about was backing up a few on dropbox previously when I was clearing my handphone. At least I still have a few memories left. 😓
Anyway, I was wondering if it will be better to get a few small hdd or one huge one. Since if the huge one gets wiped out, it’s gone.
If I managed to recover my stuff, I will share it here. 😊 hopefully!!! 🤞🏻🍀
Moral of the story is: Back up! and back up your back ups! 😑
Looking forward to my smile coming back to a very upset me in 5 days~ 😞😊
ps: 3rd time seeing his back… side on 17 dec 2017~ 😂
