My only consolation is that some of those photos were downloaded in my blog or social networking sites so, I can still retrieve them. Though the photo quality won’t be the same anymore.
So, from now on, I will really try to back up all my photos and make copies of them in CDs or external drive. This way, I won’t be able to lose any of them. I can even make a slide show of all our trips and events for memory safekeeping.
