:hug: I used this message to remind me to run my back-ups. Your experience was nothing I want to repeat. I get lazy about doing this task but the thought of having to recover several months of work almost caused me to :faint: !!!

The best solution is to buy several USB's and get rid of suffering.
Treasure up all in them and believe me you'll be safe.I was wrong
because I thought that such a thing couldn't happen to me but now
I will be very careful.Be well and have a nice day my friend!!!

I was doing the USB thing but they are so small that I misplace them. I watched the sales for electronics and finally got a Passport sized harddrive that holds 10x data as the same priced USB. Sweet! It's big enough to find but still fits in a shirt pocket.

Seagate Barracuda LP ST32000542AS 2TB 5900 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Hard Drive -Bare Drive about 160.00,I think it'll be enough for long time
because external hard drives are the best solution when you start to choke in your own data:giggle:.Stay well and take care Lia;)

OMG!!! How terrible! This is really one of the worst things that can happen to a digital artist! I really really hope you are able to recover as much as possible of what you've made!

I hope you don't stay away from dA for long though personally I know the need to take a break from this place - it's a very strong obsession.

I don't mean to sound trite but I hope you'll gain from this experience in the end. Recently I watched this excellent series about the views on happiness of various philosophers [link] . It helped me feel a bit better about my own crap situation!

And at the risk of seeming insensitive, are you able to get any talk therapy? Sometimes finding that perfect person to talk to is great for recovery!

Take care and I really hope you feel better soon! :D

That's for sure my friend,I managed to save quite a bit but how I fairly new at Mandelbulb I only regret for about 2500 my own params which I lost,that's sad.
Through them I learned all I know now.I saved every progress even the smallest steps after my everyday practice and when I began to realize that I positively advance all gone.Yes strong but positive obsession,I'm pretty happy with what I have created here for 10 months.I met a lot excellent people and artists here and most importantly I have a few great friends without whom I wouldn't be here right now,their good deeds have created beautiful memories and helped me to gather strength again, and to come back.I want to especially thank you for your efforts to help me although we didn't close so much and you didn't must do that
but yet you did it.I am eternally grateful to you for that and you can always count on me.I'm back and I feel great so be well and take care dear friend!!!

So sorry I hadn't got around to answering this message of yours. After I answered your last note, I realised I had to refresh my memory about your previous journal.

Sounds like a terrible situation you've just gone through and once again I'm glad to hear you're back!

Take care,

my friend, I am very sorry for you that have happened but I believe you have the potential to overcome this,
a hug from me can not solve anything but it can at least help you and you have to move on ... I believe you will overcome this
