Sometimes I feel like an Apollo 13 engineer. Everything is going wrong – but you use ingenuity (and duct tape) to make it work again.
Yesterday afternoon, suddenly:
- My Mac has unrecoverable disk errors
- My external drive, where my photos live, spontaneously lost all of 2020!
I make backups.
…and as it happens I had made a backup that very morning. So after a quick restore, all is well again.
And now I need to find a day where I do not need the Mac, so that I can reformat the drive and start over…
