Baby pictures gone?

I don't know what is going on with our electronics.

I have all of my pictures from 2007 to 2009 which include all of Baby's first year pictures on a portable hard drive. Well last Saturday something happened and it's no longer working. I cannot get any of the information on it off.

I was about to cry but my husband seems to think we can take it somewhere and have them fix it without erasing the information.

We took it to Best Buy but they want anywhere from $140-$500 to fix it and get the information off of it. We didn't even pay that much to buy the hard drive.

I am hoping I can find someone else who can fix it for cheaper. If not I might be breaking down and crying for days.

This has taught me a lesson though I am going to start printing pictures I take so at least I can have hard copies of them. Just in case.

How sad! Look for a smaller place-- not a chain. I was able to get a lot of stuff recovered from my old computer at this random place in Lancaster. I had a bad scare once when my computer crashed when Isaac was a baby and since then I have periodically burned cds full of pictures. I hope you are able to recover your pics!!!

I agree with Midwaydancer, definitely burn the pictures on a CD periodically. I've been trying to do that every month or 2. I had the same kind of scare a few months ago, broke down and cried, but a friend was able to recover everything for me. I've learned my lesson, definitely back everything up on CD or even get a book made every couple months, this way you have everything organized and a beautiful book to look through whenever you want.
