I had a lovely long bike ride today and pictures. I was processing them on my Vista laptop, and Bleachbit activated itself out of nowhere and deleted my entire photography collection. All of them.
Every. Last. One.
It doesn’t just move them to trash; it wipes them from the drive and they are unrecoverable. And you can’t cancel, because it ignores you when you hit “Cancel.” So they’re all gone including today’s pictures. I suppose we can put some of the blame on how Windows works, because I’ve never seen anything like this happen on Linux. I’ve seen a lot of random crap happen on Windows.
I’m a little bummed out, so that’s all the post I’m likely to make today.
Update: It pays to have backups. I managed to recover from other storage devices all but the pictures I began shooting after I started riding again. That means all my recent stuff is gone.
