I spent a couple of hours visiting with Eric and Traci last night and got to see a 20×30″ print of the Taj Mahal that they made from a file of ours. Wow…it looked great. Might even inspire me to get one for ourselves.
Eric hooked one of our bad drives up to a MacBook and darned if it didn’t show up as a drive. He could dive down through the folders to see content. Yea! After some magic to share a Windows drive with his iMac we started copying files from the bad drive to a new Toshiba drive I bought to replace the one that went bad. It was going to take awhile so we decided to have a glass of wine and relax. I’ll be back to Portland on Thursday and will get the drive from Eric on Friday. With any luck my next post about this fiasco will let me declare victory and report that all the missing personal images are home again. THANKS ERIC.
As I was traveling to Burns today I got a call from Data Retrieval…someone in Ohio. He wanted to talk about why I cancelled my request to have them TRY to get the same data off the other bad drive. Couldn’t have been the $1450.00 quote they gave me could it? Just to try to retrieve the data. I owe Eric a nice bottle of Malbec I think
