I don’t even know what happened to the April 2021 file. It was there. I was cleaning out files from my OneDrive and somehow, it must have linked to my photo files, though I don’t know how. I had most of the pictures on CD cards, but some are missing.
I lost the tulips file. I had already uploaded some of them, but I’d done a bunch of new ones and they are gone. I did a lot of work on them last night.
I’ve been trying to find the lost files for hours and I’ve just had more than enough computer for the day.
We also managed to produce an audition tape for Garry using the tripod I never use and Owen fancy shmantzy iPhone because it had the right format (.mov) and we could just mail it straight from the phone — but in between we had to compress the file and it was lucky Owen has an old Mac that has files on it they no longer support because an uncompressed 5 minute .mov file is more than 500 gigabytes and you can’t m ail it.
This doesn’t explain how I managed to lose half a month of photographs. You know, I had this feeling I should back them up yesterday. I usually do a monthly backup and keep the cards for the month until I do the backup. Which I did, but there are still files missing and I don’t understand where they could have gone.
I learned a lot about making movies and I learned that I really need to offload some photos from my hard drive because it’s nearly full. I’m tired. So this is my contribution to the day. I was up early and now it’s late and tomorrow maybe I’ll figure out where that file went.
