    This is heartbreaking to me. I've always had great respect for your work "G" and if it wasn't for you I would never attempt to work in Photoshop.

    All the best to you and your family. -TeD

    Funny thing TeD, among the few items that were recoverable was the "Jeep Chase" video at Tipella. Every time I watch that I nearly blow a head gasket laughing. Classic my friend.

    One project I had been working over the last couple of years. An "Earthship" home design, based on shipping containers and re-claimed post and beam construction. The entire structure and green houses were designed to benefit from thermal induction heating using water as heat sinks. The basic engineering was ready to send off to a civil engineer for calcs and drawings. The plan was to build the home myself at a later date. The entire exterior of the house and interior were built out for the simulator and sit on a parcel just off my KBIH Eastern Sierra Regional airport.

    The site was also used as a test bed for my libraries of autogen trees, grasses, brush, bushes and flowers. Note the volumetric grasses and floating leaves on the water.

    When I started scribbling houses [Architecture] Computers hadn't been invented [other than the 4Tran type - main frames] so I've never got into CAD....stayed with Tee square on a drawing board....only retired 2 years ago....46 years of Architecture was enough for anyone.....one more argument with wankers-er-planners and there would have been guns involved....
    My mate I went through Archi with got into CAD from the Dos days....ending up with Revit .... but he's since turned up his toes....and only 66 too....

    As if it couldn't get any worse...

    So, I had done a comprehensive recovery scan of the external storage that Windows corrupted. I saved that data out to my 5TB spinning drive in a dedicated folder. I also had a dedicated folder on that same drive containing my Acronis imaged system from a few months back. I've been accessing both of those files plucking out the bits of useful data I could identify.

    Friday I went to the 5TB spinner and both of those files have gone missing. The EaseUS recovery folder and the Acronis system image folder do not show up in the file explorer, only the "Recovery" folder I created to hold the bits that I had extracted and saved out. The drive tells me that there are 2.71 TB of data on the drive, but the only folder accessible represents about 73 gigs of used space. So, the imaged system I didn't lose in the fiasco with Windows, is now apparently gone missing down another black hole...along with the EaseUS data I had been sifting through. Can I re-scan the external drive? Sure but it's another twenty hours and spits out random numbers that I won't be able to reference against the random numbers I had already pulled out of the first scan.

    That's just peachy.....time to find something better to do with my time.

    I would think so.
    There are times when one needs to cry 'enough' and take time out, even resign one's self to beginning from ground zero.

    Gordon, I'm sorry this crap happened to your rig and files. Needing a break from computing madness is mandatory, enjoy it. And if you miss it and want to do more in the community, come back and enjoy it as well. Your work is outstanding, and it will be missed if you decide to find a better path for your talent.
    Very Respectfully,

    Buy X-Plane and install a Linux distro?

    Or just go flying (in P3D)?
