Greetings my dear friend's,I really don't know how to start this.I'm terribly disappointed because this year is like hell for me.If I could collected all the bad things that have happened to me through my entire life it would be less then what happened in this year so far.First I want to mention the incredible climate change's that don't allow people to function normally anymore and which also hit my country.Constant temperature which amount is 118.4F(48C)leads to madness.Despite all this we have river,which should provide comfort in this hellish days but swimming and relaxing is impossible because pollution has reached critical level so I wonder why all this happens just this year.I must admit that my energy level is too low and I feel enormous pressure because of all the events that are happening around me,too much illness,deaths and disasters and lately involves people who are close to me so it's like I'm in vicious circle whitout exit.When I thought it couldn't be worse my computer has literally exploded which is certainly not a product of my mistakes so I lost everything and all the hard work that I have achieved over the years just disappeared in one seconds.Hard drive is completely destroyed and I didn't managed to save anythingI can't believe it's all gone and now I must to do everything from beginning but I lost the will and I ask myself the same question again and again,is it worth the effort, time and nerves.I decided to take a break,forget everything and let myself to feel absolute freedom of existence.Dear friends I miss you all and I'm very sorry because I will not be here for some time and I hope that you all stay well and healthy because nothing else is matters!!!
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 !!!
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.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!
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!!!
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

Hey hun! If you look in my fractal works, you should be able to find some of your works. But I understand what you mean cause your works are still on dA. I'm so sorry to hear you being this upset.I wish there was something I could do. My computer has exploded too. I saved my work on googlemail. All my folders works and everything.

You're my angel of salvation and you will never know how much your support means to me dear but please don't ever want that such a bad things happen to you because you have suffered enough through life.Thank you very much for your support and love be well and take care please.I hope I will back soon!!!
no matter how many time gravity makes u fall and things make u feel like u lost its your hearts strength that gives u a message to get up and keep fighting through lifes tough time remember if we give up on are dreams and not try to get up then its like losing what u have inside the will to never give up so keep fighting
NOOOOOO!!!!Thats not fair Bro,you didn't deserve that.I am terrified about the fact that all your data is gone.I hope that there is chance to fix hard drive and return your files.Until you do that,I be here to support you all time.JUST DON'T LOSE WILL BRO!!
Thank you brother for everything,moram ti priznati da je ovo veliki sok za mene i stvarno sam se razocarao.Sve je bilo perfektno i moj napredak je bio vise nego vidljiv ali kada je covijek sretan i ponosan na svoj uspijeh,uvijek mora postojati neka caka i pitanje je vremena i trenutka kada ce sve da se srusi.Treba ostati stalozen i sabran i ne dozvoliti prokletinji da nanese vise stete nego sto moze.Drago mi je da imas opet net i nadam se da cu se ja vratiti veoma brzo jaci nego ikada.Sve najbolje!!!
Bro,znas da sam uvjek tu da te podrzim u svemu.Pomoci cu ti sto vise mogu da povratis sve izgubljeno i da nastavis ka svom cilju tamo gde si stao.Nikad necu razumet zasto se takve stvari desavaju dobrim ljudima,a losi prolaze bez kazni.Nadam se da ces se i ti brzo vratiti i sigurno ces biti jaci,u to ne sumnjam.Hvala i takodje
I am very sad about this! I'm sorry all these bad things are happening to you, bad things are the only thing that builds us to be better people. I know you feel things deeply, take your time though, just know you will be missed!
I know my friend and I'm eternally grateful to you.What is done can't be repaired and I'm aware of that fact I only regret because of some things that I lost and I will never be able to restore like pictures and video records of beautiful memories that are lost forever.I hope I'll be back soon,stay well and take care dear friend!!!
