Yeah! 12 inches of rain here today! Guess what I'll be doing all day? Shooting paintball. Damn. I think the 60D is going to get wet!

30,5 cm of rain? That's epic flooding maybe your conversation was off a weeeee bit? 60d betterwear a condom to avoid unwanted issues

Hey all, I’ve posted a few times, but I mostly just lurk.

Just wanted to report that I got my 60D back from repair. The rubber grips were coming off. I’m glad to have it fixed as the loose grips were driving me nuts!

My computer crashed. Was trying to delete a partition on a USB drive where Readyboost no longer worked. Error, and my screen began flickering. I rebooted and Windows would not reboot and after several attempts of troubleshooting with rescue disks - no use.
Did a system restore back to default installation.

Did I have proper back-ups for everything? I sure as hell did.
Loosing all my original Raw files & jpegs & stuff back in 2009 was enough for me.

Unexpected Sh!t happens guys. Back-up your important stuff.

Ahah! My bad! Not 12 inches but 2.

But well, looks like my 60D didn't like the rain. At least not that much rain. Even if I had a plastic bag over it when not in use.

Screen got all foggy from the inside, condensation I guess. But the D-pad stopped working (all direction + ''SET'' button), buttons were getting stuck pressed in, viewfinder focus point weren't lighting red anymore, list goes on...

Hope it'll all comeback working fine once it dries out.

It's amazing what electronics can survive after they dry out. I found some kid's Iphone in the weeds along the sidewalk the other day after being out for 3 days in 2 huge storms. Plugged it in for 10 min and called "mom" in the phonebook :lol:

Ah, that's nice! At least you didn't sell it back on CL. Or maybe you asked for a reward :lol:


But yeah, still waiting on it to dry out. Still does not work properly.

The good news? Rewind and repeat for tomorrow! :(

I've heard putting it in a bag of rice helps suck out the moisture?? Might be worth a try.

i use carbon clone here on my macbook pro. back it up at least twice a week to an external hard drive so in the event of hard drive failure, i can slap another hard drive in and restore it to within a few days of my last back up.

I bought a back-up drive as a Christmas gift for my mac friend. I told her today my PC crashed but luckily I had a recent back-up and it reminded her to do a back-up... been 5 months for her

She is not a photographer so does not have daily or weekly files that 'need' back-up like we do. I'll look up Carbon clone for her...

I'm just installing my Adobe products and all my Windows updates are done so next I will create an Image.

the easy way to transfer your files is
remove your hard drive from your desktop or your laptop what ever
then put the hard drive in a case
then transfer all your files to other computer ( only the files you want )
then format that hard drive and return it back to your computer
and put your system from the begining and install it with all your Fav software

and if you dont have a second computer
you have to buy a second hard drive
put the new to your computer and remove the old one which had your files
install the system to the new
and put the old drive in a case and use it as an external hard drive with all your files

but if your hard drive is broken
this will be a long story

I partitioned my C drive so Win 7 stays on C and I have all my personal files/photos/music on the partitioned (E:) drive.

Then I have a 1 TB external drive that has a back-up of my (E) drive - as well as - a copy of my Lightroom Catalogs (backing up your Raw files is smart - but the Catalogs hold all your edits and history), presets, and customizations, and all my Adobe software presets & customizations.

Reinstalling Win 7 is easy stuff, and then I pop in my backed-up Lightroom catalogs, etc, etc - and Voila.

Now I am creating an (C) Image so its even easier next time. It will have all my Windows updates and Adobe software in perfect state.

If my hard drive fails, I have Win7 disks and my ext. backup drive.

Every re-installation gets easier and easier.

Eventually - I'll store a copy off-site.

it's good you had it saved. for me, i do 2 things. one backs up the files and folders and stuff, so i can move them to other machines if i wanted to and the other clones the hard drive itself with everything included, and i can boot off of the external hard drive if i needed to and it acts just like the internal hard drive. carbon copy cloner saved my butt and hours and hours of work twice now. i won't own a mac without having that in place. mac has time machine but for me that doesn't even come close to matching what carbon copy cloner does. in about one hour i have a perfect clone of what my machine was before a crash, including bookmarks, files, folders, software...everything. it's a good thing ;)

I've been relying on Time Machine to save me... worked once when internal HD failed under warranty and I was able to restore almost entirely from Time Machine. But it sounds like I'll have to look into Carbon Copy Cloner, I like the idea of replacing a failed drive with a fresh drive and having an exact copy in place. How easy is Carbon Copy to use and how much does it cost? I'm planning on ordering one of the new Mac Pros when they get announced soon and I want to plan out keeping important stuff backed up good from the start. I'm planning a SSD for the main drive, so it won't be too large. Will Carbon Copy make a disk image file s I have an exact copy of a working setup, all software installed?
Sorry for the off-topic, but you guys happened to be discussing something related to my current plans. I love my 60D! ;)
