Seriously Frustrated

I know.  This isn't life threatening or something overly huge or serious.  But I am rather frustrated.  Let me tell you about it.

My hard drive crashed on my desktop.  Thankfully we were able to retrieve the data off of it so I didn't actually lose anything.  But it did mean I had to re-install things onto a new hard drive and/or onto my laptop.  iTunes was one of those things.  So, of course, my iPhone decides it cannot sync because it thinks my iTunes library is new despite the fact that I copied it from the back up I saved from the bad hard drive.  I tried everything I could to get it to work, but I couldn't figure out a way around it.

So I took the huge gamble, backed up my phone and then did a restore to get it to sync.  It kept everything.

Except my playlists.

Playlists I've spent literally days creating (due to the number of them I have - had - on my phone).

I also discovered that it did not keep all of my music from my old iTunes library either.  So I have to start over.  At least it's not completely over, but from what I can tell so far it's about half missing.

So I'm frustrated...grrr....


  1. My hard drive "blew out" last year and I lost everything I hadnt saved to an external hard drive. Lucklily I had printed a lot of stuff. You would think something so modern would be fixable!

    1. No kidding! I even talked to my dad, who's a computer network engineer, and he couldn't come up with a way to save it.
