Retrieving deleted pictures
Technically my pictures are not deleted. They just vanished. You see it happening to others but kept thinking, “NO, this will never happen to me”. I heard people complaining that they lost precious photos from their phones or computers yet I still think, “NO, this will NEVER ever happen to me”. And then it HAPPENED! Last night, I lost all of my precious pictures of Ayden and Ethan in my phone. All 6000 of them! Just because the stupid software crashed. But as what my friend told me, “Merryn, you kept 6000 pictures in your phone without backing up or transferring them elsewhere, sooner or later your phone WILL crash lah!” I lost all my pictures dy, don’t rub salt into my wound can? All I want is to retrieve those pictures that are gone but I don’t think I can…
My phone died at almost midnight. The entire night my mind was thinking if I can retrieve those pictures. The next day we quickly head over to the Service Centre to get my phone checked and sure enough, when the technician told me that ‘all your data will be gone’ I almost cried there and then. I lost all of Ayden’s 1st birthday bash pictures :'( Wanted to get them printed out but was so busy the past couple of weeks that it got delayed and now they are all gone. The only pictures I have now are those in my Facebook and in my blog but they are all of a lower resolution coz I resized them before uploading *cries*
I once had a conversation with a friend when he asked me what would happen if I lose my phone one day. That time I said I think I’ll die because I won’t be able to Whatsapp or check Facebook. But the past 12 hours when I was without my phone, it was not FB or Whatsapp that bothers me but those pictures in my phone. Thinking about how they are gone forever saddens me so much. Surprisingly I was very calm without FB. I wasn’t even in the mood to go on Facebook except to post a couple of rants. But what I discovered was without my phone, it is much more difficult to reply emails as I needed to use the laptop for that. I’ve not used the laptop to do anything other than blogging for a very long time. In fact, I’ve not been using any other gadgets except my phone these days. Even my camera has been chucked aside. But after today, I think I’ll start using my camera again.
Here’s ending my
rant post with a picture of Ayden taken using my camera without flash instead.
