BACK-UP

 

There are a lot of computers in our house. We have now been in place for a year and things are settled, but one minor computer element was missed. A few upgrades happened and I forgot to turn RAID 1 back on with my home machine. Which meant that when I experienced my first hardrive failure in a very long time, the Alberta photos and one other event’s photos were lost.

As it is mechanical, I was kind of hooped. However, I was able to recover about 80% of the photos off of the memory cards using recovery software,  and everything else of value is backed up.

I also went on a quick tour of the PCs, ensured that everything is properly backed up, that the latest hardcopies are in place and ensured that my USB RAID storage is in safe shape. Amazing how for $300 you can run 2TB of RAID 1 thanks to hardrive enclosures like the Kanguru (thank-you China).

A few photo’s from a 12KM Johnston Canyon hike in Banff … that I was able to recover.

All safe and sound. Banff truly is one of the most beautiful places on earth.
