Home Again

Yes, I have returned from my trip, but I’m still getting caught up on everything, so I might still be a bit sporadic until Monday.

Did you know that if you remove a SD card from your laptop’s SD slot without “stopping” it first, that Windows Vista may assign the SD card’s size to every file in the folder you have open?  Imagine my surprise when I went to backup my first memory card’s worth of photos to my external hard drive and found that there was insufficient space because the folder was 414GB?  (Bear in mind that my laptop has an 80GB hard drive.)

Fortunately, I was able to recover the deleted files from the camera memory card, because I was having no luck at all with fixing the 4GB image files…
