This journal is for anyone who's commissioned me lately but hasn't received theirs yet.


Just now, I've finally managed to reboot my computer after it froze up suddenly, but I'm afraid I've some bad news.

I'd finished 4 and was halfway though my 5th commission on the list and was set to upload them on Wednesday in a bunch.

But whilst the repair tool was running on windows it wiped certain files at random, a lot of my digital images included, and all of my commissions, both paid and unpaid.


I'm sorry guys, but after spending hours on all of them only to have them wiped, I've no motivation whatsoever to do them again.
I know this'll piss a lot of people off, but it's also pissing me off.

I'm sorry.

What can ya do? We all move on, and quite frankly, I know the pain in the @$$ it is to lose important files on your computer and need them for some reason later.

Soldier on...:salute:

Ugh, I haaaate it when this stuff happens to me... one of my worst traits is that if I've done something and it gets undone or unwritten beyond my power, I feel no desire to ever redo it. The motivation is so far gone that I will spend anywhere from a few months to never, before it ever gets redone again. This can go from video games to art or anything else ever. It sucks and it's one of the most frustrating feelings in the world >_>

I'd seriously be ripping my hair out if it happened over commissions. I feel really bad for you :<

As people told before:

1) Cheer up, it happens.

2) Now you know to backup your stuff!

3) PC froze up and repair tool wiped files?! Impossibru! Even Windows isn't that bad. You hard drive might be corrupted or you might have a virus.

4) You can try to recover these files, but don't save anything on that disk, because it might overwrite them. (These files should still be there, just place where they are is marked as empty - that's how deleting works. If this is marked as empty place, Windows can write data there, so be careful.) Google some programs for undeleting (but look on the licenses, some demos only allow you to undelete few files, some only allow you to see files that can be undeleted).

5) BACKUP YOUR STUFF!

And if you are using GIMP, not PS, you can try Ubuntu or something similar. It is better than Windows (faster, especially on old PCs, stable, more secure). Only possible issues you can encounter are:
- No Linux drivers available for your hardware (or half-assed drivers some hardware manufacturers like to make).
- Apps you use have no Linux versions and no equivalents.
- You just like Windows better.

What sort of "repair tool" would wipe out random files like that?

As a computer and Windows expert, there are only two things I can think of that would cause this: Either you've got a virus (some of them will hide your documents and then ask for money to bring them back), or you've got a hard drive that's on the way out.

This leads me to wonder what exactly happened when your computer "froze up" like that. If you've got failing hardware, it's time to backup stuff and then go shopping!

Ya know, if you were more fair, you would give those who hadn't received their commission their :points: back.
(Not saying you're NOT fair, and this is NOT to my own good, since I didn't buy anything at all!)
