Yes, you know where this is heading.

I'm literally holding back tears right now. I just talked to someone who's been trying to fix my PC. He has been using a hard drive recovery utility, and all I know is that he says it does not look good. He can see about 100 GB of photo files, but they are not viewable. I'm guessing there were probably 400 GB of photos and videos on it. I was prepared to give you a long detailed message here giving the whole story, but I can't do it. I'm too upset. We're talking 9 years of family photos gone. I do have some saved in various other places. I haven't researched other recovery services yet. From what I have heard, send away services that might have a chance with this are outrageously expensive.

Can anyone point me to any information about this, or their own experiences? Don't hold back. Thanks.

Please back up your photos. Everyone thinks it's not going to happen to them. It happens.
