Friday Image No.191

It’s been some time since it’s rained here properly. The last time was back on the 25th May. I remember it well because it was the Saddleworth Band Contest and that was the first time it had rained in weeks. Yesterday morning we had a brief shower and last night we had heavier rain. It [...]

If you know the Lake District, you will know there are a few amazing passes to drive: Wrynose/Hardknott Kirkstone Honister Whilst these passes are spectacular, you might not realise the best view is often above you.

Secondly, I still haven’t recovered my image library on the Drobo. What’s interesting though is that with the ongoing Drobo saga, I have received a few comments [...]

My saga with the corrupt Drobo is rumbling on. The Data Recovery software I was running finally completed it’s scan in the early hours of this morning, having been running all week. I watched eagerly as the final sectors were scanned and the progress bar ticked over from 99% to 100%. And then nothing happened; [...]

Working on a Recovery

Working on a Recovery

It’s been four days since my image library storage corrupted and the data recovery software is still running. To be completely honest I wasted two days switching between different data recovery solutions because I thought they were too slow. The current one has been running for 48 hours and is 59% complete.
