i had a drive failure recently. not an issue since i have a backup. mostly my photos, some docs, i don’t remember what was there. i only did not have time to backup a couple of directories with photos of that day. and there was one picture which wasn’t bad, photo of a couple and i know they would be glad to get it. that’s why i fired photorec to recover files.
what’s interesting, is that i get many images i don’t remember about. then i understood that they come from the home directory backup i kept on that drive. and here it is, all my browsing history in a palm. all my interests, sites i have visited, everything in pictures from my browser cache. and it became very clear to me, that if i were logged in to google or facebook, they would have this too.
