Operating several online resources isn’t the simplest task at the best of times but with my mental acuity diminishing day by day, I knew that one day I was going to really screw something up and now it has happened.
I went to start doing some work on our unidentified wildflower pictures as I have been doing some sorting over the past few days and imagine my horror when I realised that not just what I was working on but 98,000 images – my entire collection of photos, had vanished!
I do keep backups but I hadn’t backed up the most recent work so all that has to be done again and it will take at least a couple of days just to copy everything back from backup drives and then to re-archive it just in case of further problems.
I don’t know how I deleted such a huge number of files and at one time i would never have done such a thing.
Time will come when I will have to hand over all my work to someone else because I won’t be able to trust myself with looking after all of it.
That will be a sad day indeed.
