I'm Stupid and Might Throw Up

This is not the post I thought I'd write tonight.
I was cleaning up some space on my hard drive (or so I thought) and blissfully emptying the trash.
La la la.
Project completed.

Went back to iPhoto to download pix from my phone and...nothing.
There's not a single photo in my iPhoto. Out of thousands upon thousands.

I almost threw up. I can't find them on my external drive either.
I can find them in Finder but have NO idea how to get them back to iPhoto. And oh god, the organizing I may have to re-do.

I am so stupid and so f*cked.
No idea how this happened.
Going to the mac store tomorrow and have a date with the genius bar.
No one would ever call me techie, that's for sure.

P.S. Whoop Whoop was A-Ok by morning:)

Yikes! Not that this is the same thing exactly, but my uncle deleted photos off his camera's memory card and my wife was able to send him info about how to restore them. There are usually ways to "find" previously "deleted" items--like precious photos. Best of luck!

OMG I'm so sorry. I would be completely freaked out if I were you. I will think lots of happy, photo filled thoughts...good luck!!

if you can see the photos in finder, i think you'll be okay. at least the photos are still there. if that's the case, you might have to reorganize, but at least the photos won't be gone! and, it is possible to rebuild an iphoto library... but it's hard to say without looking at it whether or not that will "fix" your current issue. have faith in the apple genius! best of luck tomorrow!

This is why a sector of the population are techies... They can fix all the mistakes of the rest of us! I am sure they can be recovered but I probably would have thrown up too!

Oh no! I would throw up too. I hope the genius bar can help. So glad Whoop Whoop is better.

They can perform MIRACLES I tell ya :)
If the FBI can get information off of some guys computer who totally wiped it out, trying to cover up his tracks.....they can certainly find your pictures and bring them back :)

Glad the little man is feeling better.

Ugh, that just sucks.

Pomegranate said...

bummer. they're there, though. you WILL find them. it's just a matter of how and when.

Melissa said...

OMG! I so hope you find them. I would be devastated.

Julie said...

did they fix it?

Schroedinger said...

yikes! i am sure they are still there, though. just takes someone with a little tech-savvy to unearth them. let us know how it turns out!

Oh nooooooooo! That is my biggest nightmare! But if you can see them in your finder, they have to be there somewhere. Good luck at the Genius bar. And download to external harddrive ASAP!
