Just sharing the pain.
I lost 1.5 days of non-stop driving and hiking photos (sunny weather) in places mostly without any photos, and some pretty remote hiking routes. 5 minutes ago. A lot of painfully collected images by holding a phone in my hand while hiking over rough terrain.
Travelling, too slow internet at accommodations and my phone was full (holds some 50k images), so I had transferred a lot of photos to the computer. The computer was full by that time, too. Attempted to delete directories I had already uploaded. Something glitched, and the top level directory got pasted, apparently with a newline. It’s SSD, so all gone.
Judging by the free diskspace, I lost ~62.5GB of quality images.
One of those “fuck, I’m dropping this activity” moments… Will likely recover.
On this note, I wish mapillary_tools had an option to remove uploaded images so I don’t have to mess it all up like this.
