Seriously, can things get ANY worse today!

Ugh! RIP Western Digital external hard drive with all my personal pictures on it! Grrrrrrrrr! I'm so furious with myself! I knocked my top WD external off my desk today, just because I'm in a crabby mood, and nothing was going right. I was being just being careless. Now all I've done is make myself even crabbier! I've got all my customer images, and that's the important part, but I wasn't very diligent about copying my personal images to my second external. CRAP!

I think I learned a very big lesson today!

I've learned the hard way that things can always get worse!

It would be nice if they stopped for the day for you, though!

Oh no! I have a WD plugged into my computer at all times, but it sits on the ground to avoid stuff like that from happening. I'm sorry it broke, but you might be able to get the images off it if you take it in to a computer store.

Thanks! I was thinking that I might just try that, to see if it's possible or not. Can't hurt.

Thanks Marie!

You'd be amazed at how much the tech guys can recover...I hope you're able to get most of your pictures back.

Have you let out a primal scream yet? I've found that *really* helps. I scream into a pillow if I cannot go outdoors.

I learned a long time ago to not ask that question because, yes, they can get decidedly worse...

I'd say there's a good chance a repair shop may be able to extract your data. Take it to a small tech shop, not someplace like Best Buy.

Take the cover off and have a look at the hard drive. The drive itself might be fine, it might just be a loose wire or something.

I think you should take yourself to the woodshed and give yourself a darn good whipping. :0
Sorry about those pixs.

LOL!

Hugh, I don't know that I should be the one to open it up, what if I make it worse? I'm quite technically challenged!
