Has anyone of you lost photos before that were really important?

And give us the reason why you lost photos. I'm talking photos that were either accidentally deleted (hence not backed up from the camera) or from the computer crash.

I lost a binder of B&W and color negatives from a move that never made it to the new place. Hundreds of photos.

Welp, all it matters is that you can make up for what was lost if you still have all of that equipment used to take those pics.

Some photos are not replaceable to be able to redo Jacob. Some are moments-in-time captures that can't be repeated.

I lost all digital photos dated 2005 to 2017. Thousands upons thousands of photos, mostly family stuff (my son, my folks, Xmases... that sort of thing) but also a lot of landscape and nature photos. It wasn't a PC crash though, my ex-wife removed the harddrive from the PC before she scarpered. Had a ton of really great landscapes shots on there. A lot of work files too. All gone. :angry:

A couple of times over the years!  Crappy feeling too.  I've accidently deleted on card, and misplaced memory card as well.

+1 I couldn't agree more.   I think the shorter question should be, who HASN'T lost photo?
