Losing invaluable work
About one and a half years ago, I was on the phone with an Apple tech, trying to get my camcorder to work with iMovie. There were about 20 folders of video, that wasn't anywhere else but on my camera. The support person said that all of these were the same, and that I just had to back up one, and could delete the rest. Unfortunately (VERY unfortunately--to the point of tears), they were not all the same. That evening, I lost literally thousands upon thousands of clips--almost a years worth of completely priceless comedy sketches.
Fast forward to yesterday.
Yesterday, my camera crashed while we were making a movie, and everything that is now on my camera was deleted. Needless to say, I feel like I just lost a beloved pet--it's truly a terrible feeling, knowing that DAYS of hard work--just GONE.)
Has this happened to you before? Whether it be movies, music, anything? How did you handle it?
Also, did you attempt to restore it? I'm trying to restore these myself, but it's not going so well.
