I regret to inform you that one of our hard drives, which contained the R drive and the P drive, passed away yesterday. It will be sorely missed. Rather than bore you with the complexities of the situation, know that Gabe and I have set up a temporary backup. If all goes according to plan, you will never notice a difference.

make sure you do not delete photos from today from your cameras’ memory cards until you have put them back on the drive.
If you have any questions or confusion, feel free to ask me.

It was a good drive. Happy, useful.

*SIDE NOTE: We didn’t really bury our old hard drive in the ground OR send it to the landfill! Mosey on over to this Wiki site to learn how to properly and safely dispose of old computer parts.
The is nothing worse than getting that “blue screen of death” when you try to use your computer!!!! Mine at work died suddenly last fall and wiped out 7.5 years of archives and folders. Bleh
Yikes. Fortunately, we have off-site back-ups so can only ever lose a day’s worth of work. But still.
