Sad 3 TB of data lost ... Reply to this Post Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Posts Report Post to a Moderator       Go to the top of this page

3 days ago I had a serious HD crash. 3 TB data lost. the disk contained the main part of my object & figure archive. no creative work has been lost, but lots of geometry files are missing. not sure yet what projects might be afflicted by this issue. I have to open all scenes, check all characters to see what's missing. I should be able to restore most of the lost data but this will take some time. no new releases to be espected in the near future ...

looks as if the hd is physically damaged. only chance to restore data directly from the damaged disk would be a very expensive professional service. so right now I concentrate on building up my archives again by reinstalling from old backups. sadly this is very time consuming ...

about 20 % of the newer creations are affected. luckily most of it can be restored from backups or older archives. until now I have found just one character that might be lost for good as I simply can’t remember where I got it from and the name doesn’t show up when I search for it. in most cases it's just minor things like for example a cactus in the desert scene, a newly added pair of shoes or a single texture I created as an addition for an existing model ...

this will take some time. good thing is, that I have already rebuilt my core poser library. so I am able to continue at least with those projects, that are not affected by any data loss ...
