I had this error on my master computer yesterday morning. This computer (I'm on it now) is only six weeks old.
This particular error ends with some sound advice from along the lines of - it's all kewl man, if you don't get it going on our few suggestions
just reinstall windows and start again.
Not too helpfull really. I had not made a disc image so i had to start from scratch reloading programs and settings. I was able to get my files out, what little there were.
I keep everything that matters including photos, on two mirrored drives and a back up external drive.
Now this was a timely reminder for me to image all my OS hard drives before another computer decides to do the same thing (this is a windows 7 problem)
The point here is, are your photos backed up?
Are they really?
I've seen a few cases of digital bye bye. One lady I observed went through it twice. I think she went back to film after that.
But really if it happens to you it's not going to be very funny.
You know who you are. Buy an external drive and back it up.
