Hard drive is in the freezer***!!
Idiot* husband opened the computer to hookup and retrieve info from his alternate hard drive and now MY computer hard drive is toast...T-O-A-S-T.
Why oh why did I stare at the disks on the desk and not open the package sooner.
Things to fix and replace and stuff to re-install once all the work is done.
*EDITED...I'll still be around but hubby's laptop is hard to navigate and no access to picture software, etc.....oh my latest bookmarks and pictures, oh well, Make sure you back up on a pen drive every week!! It's okay, I've learned not to get attached to such things....C'est la vie!!
*hubby's wording, he won't be mad. He's more mad at himself although he really didn't do anything. He just happened to be the one using it when it died. It would have happened anyway...too funny it was him!
***Supposedly this works part of the time to retrieve any data. Cross your fingers
