external drive or CDs, DVDs ?
I bought a new Medion from my computer guy. He had "cut and pasted" thousands of photographs and documents from my old hard drive and saved them on my new computer. The first day when i switched it on it said press F11 for recovery. Foolishly I did and subsequently lost 6 years of photos (6 yrs of my life!) I went back to my computer guy who said that nothing can be done ~ he still has the old hard drive but says that because he cut and pasted the photos from this to the new computer that they cannot be retrieved. I feel as if i have lost a loved one!
