The content you’re about to see is a bit painful to watch just because of how emotionally heartbreaking it is, but I really hope it will help remind everyone out there of how important it is to back up your data.
Like any other person can before her, 4-year-old Candace caught herself in a situation where she didn’t pay enough attention to what she was doing with the pictures on a camera that her Uncle Dave loaned her. When she accidentally deleted one of his beloved photos, Candace was struck with guilt that I’m sure we can all imagine; she had to face her uncle and tell him that his pictures “went away forever.” And though it may be hard to hear that your memories were tampered with and gone in the matter of a second, Uncle Dave managed to capture his niece’s confession on camera and upload it here to show us what it feels like.
Before Candace was ready to make more room on the card by deleting pictures, she should have remembered to copy the RAW files from the camera to an external, her laptop’s hard drive itself, or even a cloud folder. We’re hoping that she learned from the ordeal because a situation like this is always sad to hear about. According to sources, Uncle David has since forgiven her, and has agreed to give her more pictures.
