So I finally got my laptop back.  Again, thank you all for helping me out with getting it back.  It is much appreciated.

Unfortunately, all the data was lost.  :(  So I had to have the OS reinstalled and everything.  I am slowly getting programs back but it will take awhile.  As far as art files, I have images posted on DA and Photobucket but no photoshop files.

Damn... that's a real shame. This time be sure to use somthing to backup your precious Photoshop files ^^

You have a damn lot of choices for that, DropBox, Raspberry Pi with an external HDD, SSD, the list goes on...

That sucks about the data. However, a little deconstructing of the saved image files you do have can kinda give you something back. Not the same, but something.

You can see if a drive recovery place can get your data. It can be expensive but they can recover from a lot of dead drives.

(Not looked at pricing lately -- it might be reasonable now.)

I'll check to see if there is any place locally that can do it.  Thank you

Better to start out with a blank laptop then no laptop. I am sure you be up and running in no time.

What exactly happened to your laptop? You said they reinstalled the OS, was the original HDD okay? And where did you take it to get fixed? Sorry about the questions, I work in computer repair and was curious.

HDD was non responsive and could not be seen by the laptop.  The HDD went bad when I accidentally hit the laptop.

Ah that sucks, So I guess you had to replace the original HDD then. Sorry to hear that

Ow... You don't save your work elsewhere? Even if you don't want to buy an other hdd try some cloud solution like onedrive. I use it myself and like that I know that if I have to wipe everything I can get all my work back.

You got a copy of the install, right?  Don't need to repurchase the OS?

:icondaikkenaurora:
daikkenaurora Featured By Owner Apr 2, 2014
No, the repair guys reinstalled the OS for me already at no extra charge.

How will this affect your workflow? As far as I know you sketch on paper, not tablet...

Get an SSD and a cloud backup system and let's get you back up and working.

Right but all my previous photoshop files that I had saved on me laptop to do prints and books are all gone.  Gotta start from square one.
