If anyone in the NYC area has HD recovery software and a HD reader PLEASE PLEASE let me try a recovery with your stuff. I’m pretty sure everything is gone but man, it’s all my work from the past 1.5 years and I’m totally devastated. It happened a few days ago and I’ve purposefully been avoiding thinking about it but now that I am I’m just devastated. I can’t believe all my work is gone. Professional work including hundreds of headshots, all my landscape work that I meant to print and sell this winter, all my writing, the original drafts of the chapbook I published this year. Like, if you have this equipment and software PLEASE let me know. I really don’t want to spend hundreds on a HD recovery app for it to just not work.
Edit: A ton of people are telling me to use dropbox and shit. Bros. I know what dropbox and shit is. I know I fucked up by not auto-backing up into the cloud. Here’s what happened: I backed up a laptop onto an external hard drive, and took the HD home intending to replicate the backup a million times when I got home on dropbox and elsewhere. By some horrifying act of God, the HD was inaccesible when I got home, even though I made extra sure to not bang it around. :(
yo signal boost because cat's work is fresh as heck and if you help her get it recovered you will literally be salvaging a national treasure
