Today, my external hard drive broke. My husband tried to fix it, and the computer told him he needed to format it. Apparently he didn't know what formatting does, so he did it. I'm a wedding photographer and had a full summer of unfinished wedding photography on there. FML

  • If your husband doesn't know what 'formatting' means, why was he the one attempting to fix it?
    Also, as you had important files on there, it might have been worth calling someone who was paid and qualified to do it. And this is what backing up is for.
