Just a quick update on my disk crash situation. I'm pretty sure I can retrieve at least 70% of my test shots in an indirect manner by using copies of the uploaded raw data files but retrieving and reprosessing them can take up to 2 weeks meaning the long-awaited review of D200 probably won't go online before 15 January at earliest, more likely around 20 January. Patrick Bramlett stepped forward and offered software to help recover data from the crashed disk. I'm running the disk scanner right now, but it is excruciatingly slow on the badly damaged drive so I'll have to wait until midnight today before I can learn whether or not any files are recoverable. I might save nearly a week of work if the recovery succeeds, so it is well worth waiting for the scanner to complete its tip-toeing over the disk surfaces :biggrin: The worst damage, apart from having a delayed review, was the e-mail orders from clients amongst them Oxford University Press. Thanks to the assistance given by Paul aka Montydog (including sniffing and sleuthing in a dog-like manner I presume), I have reopened my contacts with the clients and am positioned to provide the ordered files as of tomorrow. The Nikon Cafe community is really unique. A very warm thank you to all members!
