I'm so so absolutely sick in my stomach right now. I can not even talk about this on the phone without breaking into tears. My new laptop was majorly disfunctioning so Dell had me do a system restore on my computer. It was basically to completely wipe out my computer and start from scratch. The rep talked me through how to backup all my pictures and documents onto a DVD. Well as you can probably guess by now it DID NOT back up. I have NO pictures developed since Christmas. Yes this includes Marshall's pictures. The ONLY upside is I did upload 89 of Marshall's hospital pictures to Ofoto shortly after he was born. Other than that, it's all I have!!! I lost all of my mom's group files which is massive but not nearly as precious as my pictures. I can recreate files but I can not retake pictures.

So this is my plead!!!! If anyone has ANY pictures of my boys will you PLEASE save them to a disk or email them to me??????? Even if I emailed you pictures of them and you still have them saved will you forward them back to me? I'm begging!!! Once I get them I'm printing them right away.

Thank you so much and seriously please pray I do not have bad dreams about this tonight. Have I ever said I hate technology?

I am soooooooooo sorry for you! I know how that feels. I lost ALL of Jodus' baby pictures too. I felt the same way. I called Rodney screaming and crying because they were all gone. Would you believe though that since we have been in Germany we had to take the tower in to be fixed and Rodney told him how I lost all of Jodus'pictures and wouldn't you know...when he gave the tower back to us he also gave us a disc of "recovered" pictures! Some where, some how he found them! So there might be hope! Now once I upload pictures to the computer I ALWAYS back them up on discs. I don't ever want to lose my pictures again. I share your pain Melanie!

I am so sorry that happened to you. I really should back up my photos...I would be devastated. I hope you are able to get some of your pics back.
I dont know how much it would cost, but theres gotta be a way to recover them. Good luck to you.
