I will remain calm....

Somehow in the process of having an external hard drive hooked up to my laptop, a whole folder of photos & videos from VanCon 2016 just disappeared! It went from being a folder of several GB to a file of 1KB.


Thankfully, the original photos & videos are still on my camera and I can back them up again.
So frustrating though!

My laptop is running out of room and memory, so I've been trying to back-up files on external hard drives and even online, but in trying to back-up the files I keep running into issues (like programs or the entire laptop freezing up) because of the lack of room and memory. It's quite the conundrum.

I realized there was 12GB of photos & videos in my iPhoto Library, so I was backing those onto the external hard drive in order to delete them off the system. But it's also giving me problems. *sigh* I'm like, "Just let me back up these files all nicely and you'll HAVE more room, laptop!!!!!" I know the laptop's old, but I do not need these temper tantrums! Grrrrr!
