WD anywhere? Try WD nowhere…
Several months ago I had folder in “My Documents” which I backed up using WD Anywhere to an external hard drive. After backing up, I deleted the folder from my computer.
Yesterday, I confirmed those files were still in the Backup drive. I once again created an empty folder in “My Documents” with the same name so that I may add to the previous backup. However a minute later I decided to rename the folder a little bit differently so that WD Anywhere would create a separate instance in its back up list.
Now the files I had backup a few months ago are gone. However, to my surprise they can be found in the restore list under the new folder name. But when I go to restore them I get an error saying:
failed to find store instance for File: C:\Documents and Settings\Warmpixelpie Studio\My Documents\__KINDAROOMY ARTWORK\Enceladus\Saturn_for enceladus_wrk.psd, type = ‘file’, checksum = ‘y4Zpy7sF9VtFTRcTvLT+xgMHjTo’, attributes = Archive, create time = 1/4/2010 2:24:15 AM, last write time = 1/4/2010 2:24:21 AM, length = 88723929, compressed length = 88723929, instance id = 22167
Help, I have apparently just lost hundred of gigabites of original artwork, totally a years’ worth of hard work. I am extremely POed. Can anyone help.
