I had the same thing happen here. I just got another computer, loaded LOR onto it and then copied my backup files to it. Up and running in about 3 hours. Always, always have backups. I have 3 copies on 3 different zip drives. A harddrive will fail and you never know when it's going to happen.

I agree with George. Gremlins I suspect. I can not stress this point enough. BACK UP YOUR FILES.

Just think after all of the hours you spent creating your sequences why would you not protect them???

External hard drive Flash drive In the cloud. I feel for you.

And for those who need an offsite backup solution, send me a message. I'll get you a link to one of the programs I use.

The first time I skimmed over that my eyes saw offshore, not offsite.  I started wondering why a decorator would need an offshore account to store their sequences?

Maybe they're one of those 1% types and they're just use to storing their money offshore so why not their sequences.  Sequences are very valuable if they're good and I heard the new tax plan that is in the news lately will eliminate the deduction for self made sequences.  This fake news stuff is kinda cool. ;)

I use almost the exact same hardware. I will be happy to share all of my songs with you from this years show (will have the pixcon16 in them) and songs from previous years which do not have the pixcon. Give me a couple of hours and i'll email them to you.

7 years experience,,,you should no  better than to not backup.  

From similar past thread, seems like one option is to follow-up with some type of IT support person to see if there is a chance to recover files form the old harddrive. 

 

If not, might be best to zero in on a handful of sequences you would like and  with a shotgun request  for anything. 

 

I've got a pretty good inventory of "shared" sequences but only send files based on specific song request.

Thanks to all who responded with sequences and tips.

After a double blow with this years light show (hard drive & flash drive fried by lightning strike and Injury from ladder fall) its finally up and running

Once again I greatly appreciate ALL the sequence offers and tips.

My display consist of my house which is outlined (2 roof peaks, 3 windows, front door, 2 garage doors, wreath, arch and 4 small trees( using holiday coro brilliant bulbs along with 3 - 16 channel controllers for yard accents)

Thanks to ALL

Merry Christmas and a Happy New year
