Crying Is Not An Option

February 20th, 2009 · 1 Comment

As much as I would like to cry, it will not help. As I was ingesting footage from a recent shoot my G5’s main hard drive crapped out on me. 2 weeks ago I backed up my main hard drive because Apple’s Time Machine kept having errors and wouldn’t backup my main hard drive automatically. There are a few pictures and audio files that I’m without in between the hard drive failure and backing it up. Not so bad…so you would think I wouldn’t be as upset…you would be wrong my friend.

I just finished editing my Grandmothers audio book, IT’S ME and now have to start all over from Chapter 1. It took me quite some time to finish it and it is exhausting. I still have some raw emotions from her recent passing.

So I put the hard drive in the freezer and hope in the morning I can at least grab the audio book files off the hard drive before it becomes recycled.

    Dude. Totally feel your pain. I had two hard drives wreck in the last year, one with 3 months of footage and FCP projects, another with about 500 GB of personal data.

    I’m totally sold on Drobo (drobo.com). I’ve bought two now and they are the most reliable prosumer RAID system I’ve used.
