    Ugh, my laptop died on Friday night. Not only am I having BDW withdrawls, all my stuff is possibly gone for ever. That includes all wedding related bookmarks, pics, ceremony vows, welcome letter, etc. Ugh! I got a new Mac Ibook today and they are going to try and recover all my stuff. I am so bummed out, I hope they can recover everything. The most important stuff is my pics. They chronicle my FI's and I relationship...all our trips.

    Please keep your fingers crossed for me...I need some good BDW vibes.

        I feel for you!!!! The exact same thing happened to me about 2-3 months ago....I was devastated! I had a Mac also and they couldn't recover it without me paying over $2000. I know it's annoying, but, most of the bookmarks, you can recover....perhaps, you sent some of your pics over email I did that with some and was able to recover, but, basically the last 4 years of my life is gone! I hope the same thing does not happen with you!

          $2k that is insane! Best Buy said they could do it for me for $100. I have a .mac account with a website with my pics. I did email them to people too, great idea.

            I TOTALLY feel your pain! I'm still dealing with a bum laptop as well and DH is getting me a MAC next week b/c of all the PC problems.

            I have recovered most of my info and invested inan external hard drive.

            But trust me, I know how much this SUCKS for you!!!!! :-(

            yari, when you get a new one, invest in an external hard drive, like a portable one. we have decent one we got for about $250, TONS of space, and we backup ALL our important stuff like pics/music/documents to it. that way if something happens to the computer we basically have a 2nd copy waiting.

            good luck, my fingers are crossed for you!

                Yari, I hope you're able to recover most of the stuff. I hate when this happens.
