there's some real gems in that thread.

some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", and an M5, also an M6 that has had a 720nm filter bolted onto the sensor:

Bob Estremera, if you are reading this thread, it is not the end of the world (yet). All your images are still in the hard drive and recoverable. When you delete a file, you basically tell the OS that the "space" occupied by that file is available to be occupied or overwritten by another file or data. The original file is still in the hard drive until it is overwritten by another.

Here is my favorite method to recover files using Ubuntu Live CD:

There are many other methods too if the above fails.

Oh says the days of film, never a time of, where are my files? "In a box", I'd respond, nothing will replace that.

My dog ate my slides once; not really ate but chewed on them :)
She likes the sweet smell of fresh slides.

Maybe it's not as bad as the guy in the linked thread, but I've had my own 'idiot' moment with backups. I have an incremental backup scheme for all my data, which goes to 2 separate hard drives, and I back up regularly. Then one day my PC data drive was accidentally formatted, but I wasn't worried as I had the backups. Unfortunately, I then discovered that, when specifying what files/folders to back up, I'd managed not to tick my Lightroom catalog (i.e. the '.lrcat' file). I therefore lost all the edits I'd ever made to my hundreds (or probably thousands) of RAW files :oops:
