Yeah, you guys read that right; I had some MAJOR issues with my laptop over the last 5 days. First, I was working on a piece in Photoshop when the program shut down on me. Tried to restart it a few times, and no good.
Well, fine then! I'll just restart my computer, no problem.
Once the thing began restarting, it would freeze during the startup of the OS X program (Mac laptop). It could go for HOURS without really starting up. Tried to start it a couple times for a few days, no go.
NOW I'm getting worried.
So I go onto Apple's site, over to Support Discussions for help. I get it (put in the Installation disk and hold 'C' as you startup), but I made a mistake and actually re-install the program, which I wasn't supposed to do. I pick the wrong options and all that too.
But hey, my laptop's turning on! Everythings hunky-dory again.
EXCEPT ALL MY FILES ARE GONE. HO S***!!! Thankfully I kept a good chunk of my art and resumes on a disk, but I lost some of my most recent art (last 7 months or so) and all my images and music. So now I'm wondering if I should be happy or not. I actually begin to accept the fact that it's all gone and try to start over.
But today I called my local Staples to see if they do Data Recovery, and turns out they do. So I may actually get my stuff back (I hope).
So yes, stressful couple of days. If I DO get my files back, I'mma delete all the stuff I wasn't worried about and re-burn my art and such. I was working on some things, as I said, so we'll see how soon those things get done now.
