Dear Spicie Foodie followers,readers, visitors and fellow Foodie Friends,
First if I may give all of you a very important tip, back up all of your data, photos, file, blog, articles and anything else of importance to you.
I want to let everyone know that I will not be updating or sharing any new recipes for a week or two. No I am not abandoning my beloved blog, I am being forced to take a break. On Friday my external hard drive started acting strangely. Fast forward to Sunday afternoon and this is where it stands, thanks to my wonderful husband I was able to recover part of the data off my external hard drive but not all of it. You see I have been using my external hard drive to save a lot of my work and not backing it up on my computer nor burning it onto DVDs. Well much of the data that I have lost was for my Spicie Foodie blog not to mention years and years of other photos, files, iTunes music, work related data and well I don't know what else. Honestly I don't know whether to cry like a child or have a couple of drinks to numb the shock.
Thankfully my husband thinks he may have found a software that maybe able to restore the rest of the drive. I am keeping my fingers crossed or as I say in Spanish Changitos. So I will be spending the rest of the foreseeable future trying to sort out the data saved and making sense of what is lost and remains in limbo. Unfortunately until I have this sorted out I cannot devote any time to anything else. I look forward to sharing my recipes and drooling over all of yours very soon. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope you all have a great week!
Please back up all of your data don't learn the hard way like I am!
