Sorry for the lack of updates.
My computer died about 2-weeks ago. Like really, really died. As of now there is no recovering whatever was last on the hard drive. I do have an external hard drive, and yes, I do back my stuff up but I do it every 3-6 months. I think the last time I backed my info up was in in May or June right before we moved into the new house.
I think I may have lost a lot of photos and it makes me sick to think about it but there is nothing I can do so no sense dwelling on a lost cause and Im not to keen on paying for data recovery since those services are so overpriced.
Anyway, i'll do a proper post later once I get everything set up.
