So I blame Spool Photography for my latest bad luck. After he wrote a post about how does eveyone back up their photos I started to see some funny things happening with my brand spanking new laptop. Like a true IT professional I ignored it for about a week, but the past few days things were getting worse and worse. Yesterday I did a Family Portrait for some good friends and at the end of the shoot copied all the files across to the laptop and then couldn’t open Photoshop. I already back up everything on a ‘regular’ 3 monthly basis so I ran off and grabbed the external USB hard drive that I had for backups. 5 mins after the back up completed the hard drive in the laptop died a miserable death.
Talk about lucky!!!
