No Data Left Behind #Computer

John's Task

I know, I know, I said I was going to get back to writing kinky stuff and more BDSM stuff now that my computer is back up and running…

Well life does take a different road at times…

Once I had the puter back where I wanted the first thing on the plate was to help Kayla update her site. That had been on the back burner for some time all hinging and waiting for my cumputer to running at full steam.

After that..well I am a patient man to a point, I am also a persistent man.
I had talked about how in all this I lost quite a bit of data, photo’s documents, etc when my backup drive failed.

Well my days of digital hoarding aren’t quite over yet.

A number of years ago I began playing with Linux, I love it. So much more stable then Windows. It’s a solid system and over time I can pretty much do everything I did on Windows on Linux.

I have always had a interest in computer forensics, it has fascinated me. Long story short I found a forensics program that runs on Linux and I have been in the process of recovering my data from the failed drive. Thus far I have recovered close to 3/4’s of it and as far as I can tell my photos have been coming back fine along with other files.

So yes I have been a bit busy with that undertaking.

On the upside not only am I recovering most of my files but I’ve picked up a new skill as well.

I do have some things in the wings, I’ve been scribbling down some thoughts, ideas, and even have a few things started as drafts in Word documents.
So hopefully the crazy month of January will be behind soon and I can get back to some naughty business.

    I am SO ready for January to be over. Come on, February, don’t suck like January! πŸ™‚

    I’m happy you’ve recovered so much data. I might not understand your level of digital hoarding (2 terrabytes of data, y’all!!) but I support it. πŸ™‚

    New skills? What kinda new skills? ~grin~ Well, whatever they are I hope Kayla’s enjoying them… As to the photos – good for you! I’ve had the blue screen of death one too many times for it to be funny… πŸ˜›

    Wow, that is great that you were/are able to recover all your pics. I keep saying I am going to sign up for an online back up system because I’m to lazy to hook up the external HD to back stuff up onto… ughhh it’s procrastination at it’s finest around here when it comes to this stuff but I do know I would be devastated to loose my family pictures. :/ Looking forward to your future posts.
