Music Crisis


I am grieving the loss of several thousand songs.

I thought they were safe on my external hard drive.

I thought I knew what I was doing.

But, I f*cked up.

They are gone.

Thousands of dollars, hundreds of hours spent downloading, burning, ripping...80% of it is gone.

I am in shock. I spent over an hour searching my computer for them....I am fairly tech saavy so I know where to look and what to do...but they are fucking gone.

I emptied my recycle bin - does anyone know how to retrieve something after its been deleted from there? That's my only hope.

I am crying.

Aww honey - I'm sorry. I probably don't know more than you do, but what were you doing when you lost them?

I'm sorry to hear about that. But that's one reason I simply don't trust MP3s and why I prefer vinyl and CDs. They don't simply disappear in some electronic hiccough.

I'm SO sorry to hear that!!! I know how it feels.

Once, I lost many of my CDs and tapes as well as my guitar in a flood that devastated my
apartment!!!

It must have been a traumatic time, pause!
