So here is what is not a good day:
When you’ve been working on a project for 3 months and have about 300 gigs of media referenced to the project, then out of no where the 300 gig external drive decides to commit suicide. Yes, we’ve lost tons and tons of data, more than I’d really like to think about at this time. The good news, if you can manage to see it through all of this crap, is that most of the files are just media files and can be restored. The references exist in the project so we can take each reference and re-digitize the footage. But we are still talking about more data than most people deal with in an entire lifetime, and it will take quite some time to put it all back together. So my life will be nothing but the restoration of this project until it is complete. Just when we thought it might wind down….oooooooh noooooooo.
