Hard Drive Crashed and Burned

My storage drive went bad, so I lost all my pictures from the past five years or so. All my pictures of vacations, family, my baby horse growing up, all my jewelry creations...*sigh*. My computer guru brother is trying to help recover it, but at this point things aren't looking good. Just a word of advice, save your pictures (and anything important) to a disc or something, because if your drive goes bad it will ruin your day. I am really starting to think about going back to printing them all out. I'm also going back to a paper address book and daily planner (paper) after loosing all my data multiple times. Technology has not been much of a time saver for me lately.

Has anyone had these type of computer problems, or am I the only one?

This is why I have backed up all my photos to an external hard drive. Another option is to upload them to a photo hosting site, like Shutterfly, Photobucket, Flickr or Webshots.
What a bummer for you! I hope you can retrieve some of your pics back. Hmmm, new computer on the horizon? That is a positive!
