Anyway, here's the note I got from Mugs ten minutes ago.
Johnny, I dont know if you were there, but at the beach, $daughter gave $niece her memory stick from her camera to download photos onto $niece's computer. While she was doing it, the computer "crashed" or something, and when they tried to look at the photos they were gone. We dont understand how the pictures could have gotten lost?
$husband took the camera to a computer geek (no offense) and they said they thought they could unscrabble them, but they would have to run the program for a few hours, and they charge $80 per hour. $daughter is almost ready to throw away her life savings to get the pictures. Crazy!
Do you have any ideas how we could "unscrabble" them? Have you ever heard of this? Let me know
Hope all is well....
This sounds odd to me. I remember 20 years ago when you could munge up a database on a floppy during a supposedly read-only operation & introduce an off-by-one error that could be painfully corrected. But $80 an hour over more than one hour to "fix" a data format problem on a memory stick? What is it, encrypted with a 400 bit key?
