I just lost all of my photos. →
I was editing some photos on a friend's mac, and it completely froze up. Had to give it a hard shutdown.
As a result, it somehow corrupted my entire backup folder of photos since 2006. Upon connecting the external to my PC, it booted up, and deleted the corrupt folders (they were, apparently, completely unreadable).
Serves me right for not ever backing them up onto DVD.
I kind of a mess right now.
