My computer crashed and My WIFE misplaced my sd card with my sequences!! Im in desperate need of a Christmas miracle!! I need 16 channel sequences!!

I know this is too late, but as it is so often stressed here on the forums:  Backup, Backup, & Off-Site Backup.  Most of us have hundreds or even thousands of hours into sequencing.  All that data needs to be backed up regularly, and kept in multiple locations...

Even if your computer doesn't boot up, you might still be able to pull the sequences off the hard drive.  Depending on what kind of hard drive you have, you might be able to use a hard drive docking station like this:

You can use it for 3.5" and 2.5" hard drives.  I've used mine to pull data off hard drives that would no longer boot the pc.  They can also be used to attach a hard drive for external storage, although I think the NAS options are better.

And if that doesn’t work or you just don’t want to try, I had the Geek Squad suck the data off a crashed drive. Retrieved 99% for me years ago. But even then, as suggested above, had sequences saved already to some sticks. 

Good luck and as Bob-O points out, give her your list....

I would definitely go with this option, especially if you can't find one of those hard drive docking stations.  Plus, even if you manage to find a docking station, you still might not be able to read the data.  The Geek Squad might actually be your best and quickest option at this point. 

They're not cheap though:  https://www.bestbuy.com/site/geek-squad/geek-squad-data-recovery/pcmcat748300502324.c?id=pcmcat748300502324

I'm thinking you might need the Level 3 service for $1,450 ("Failed or damaged drive") but maybe you'll get lucky and they can do the job for less.

You can always try it yourself with the docking station, then if that doesn't work, return the docking station and bring your hard drive to the Geek Squad.

I have one of these. Not all fancied up 😛, but I can use it to do any task (clone, copy or just use  files). It is OS independent. The attached drive is just another (now USB) drive

Accepts SATA, PATA (3.5 and 2.5), has its own power so you can even use it wit that old ZIP drive you saved or a CD?DVD drive.

Beautiful is not included for $13
