Today, I am a happy writer! A gloriously, deliriously, ecstaticly (I don’t think that’s a word but at this point in time, who cares?), overjoyed writer! My files, for the most part, have been restored! And the best part is that I did it myself and it cost me less than $100.
The product I used is from Get Data Software Development Company. I downloaded their software to an extra USB (not the one I’m using as a backup for GTT. I didn’t want to do ANYTHING to potentially mess that up.) and ran the scan to see if it could find my files. It did! I immediately purchased the full version and saved all those missing files to that USB. All the photos I thought I lost? As far as I can tell, it found them too and now they’re saved on an external hard drive.
What a relief.
I updated GTT (and promptly saved a copy in Dropbox) and I’m very pleased to announce that I’ve now crafted nine chapters and about 21,000 words. Today is a great day!
