That sucks! I'm sorry too! You're handling is better than I would, my PC would be in little pieces by now, :chainsaw: even if it was my fault :lol: That would make me feel better, but then I'd have no computer... Hmm. Maybe I'll rethink this plan...
We are (mostly) patient people, right? I'm hoping for them to be recovered *crosses fingers*. And be understanding.. :happy8:

You could always post it without pics if you don't want to take them again..? Either way, I don't mind. Cheesy

Ouch, painful. I do sympathise Sad Just a thought though - have you tried looking for software that can restore deleted files? I gather there's programs that can recover anything save a low level format (the surest way to wipe the hard drive), so it might be worth looking into Smiley

Trust me - I did not handle it well.  I couldn't even talk because I would have burst into tears, and I was so sick to my stomach I nearly threw up.  I just can't understand it - it makes no sense.  I know they were there, because I named them and marked my story where each of them would go.  I'm sure they had their own file, and I was certain I had put that file where all the others were - chapters 1-26.  But they don't show up anywhere - not even in the backups I made - so I must have done something stupid.

I'll check into that before I start reshooting, Sadie, and see if it's possible.  I don't know what's involved, as I am a bit of a computer retard, and depend heavily on my husband for his computer help.  It's nice living with a geek when you're computer addicted.  I don't know if they can be, though, since my husband wiped everything off when he restored my computer.  It was pretty much taken down to the cellular level and built back up again.  I'm probably facing a reshoot.

DD!  I thought you fell off the face of the earth.  Good to have you back, and thank you for reading.

Bad news, folks.  My husband ran a recovery.  We found 5 pictures from that photoshoot (there were probably a good 40 or so to begin with) 4 were already partially overwritten so couldn't be used.  The other was a thumbnail, which also couldn't be used.  I have to reshoot the whole thing.:sad1:

Oh, I'm sorry, AF. I was so hoping your hubby could recover most, if not ALL of your screenshots. I know how hard you work to capture the perfect image to help tell your stories.
I don't envy you having to start over again. I hope your reshoot goes smoothly and painlessly.

Ugh, I'm sorry hun. That really sucks. I recently accidentally deleted all my sims files and did a recovery and they didn't come back! I had started a story too, that I was getting ready to post here. And now the sims, and the pics are gone! So, I kind of know how you feel.
Man, I flipped out after that happened. I guess just be happy you didn't lose your characters too! =p
I'm still fuming about losing mine! GRRR! It makes me want to kick my computer, then kick myself since I'm the one who did it. Well, actually if you want to get technical, I deleted the EA Store thing (not thinking it would delete everything). Maybe I should blame them. Stupid EA Store! lol.
*Done ranting now*
Anyway, good luck with the photos. Can't wait to read this next chapter when you're finished! =)

Thanks, Sadie.

Thanks, Sugah.  I started reshooting today.  Got a bit done - but I'm going to have to rebuild a couple of sets and make some more sims because they weren't saved.  It will get done, eventually.

Welcome, Aralie (isn't that a pretty name that I'll have to be using on a sim soon Cheesy )

You're right - it could be much worse.  I could have lost neighborhoods and characters - that would have been quite painful, indeed.  I'm so sorry you had to go through all that.  I would have been very pissed.  Stupid EA store - it was probably their fault.  Anyway, I'm glad you're enjoying the story, and maybe someday I'll actually get an update done!

Oweee! I've only just started fiddling with picture taking and that's a headache in itself. An entire reshoot? Eep.
Still, as has been said, it could have been worse.
Take your time with it, I have so many stories I'm keeping track of right now, I'm losing track of them all. Smiley

Oy!  Me too - and I'm behind on most of them.

Yes, very painful, but it could have been worse.  I'll get through it...someday.  I appreciate you guys all being so patient.
