So last Sunday my hard drive completely failed on my three-month-old Macbook that I spent a lot of money on to avoid these kind of issues with my old computer. I lost an entire semesters worth of work that was to go into a major urban design proposal that I’d been working on (that was due on Tuesday). I was pissed. To get it all done I slept for about 7 hours in a three day period but I was pretty stoked I managed to get it finished.
I now have my computer back, the hard drive has been replaced and I’m content even though going through the process of downloading/installing everything sucks. BUTTTT I just realised that I have lost the 2500+ photos I recently put onto the computer.
