I finished gathering all my sound bites for finishing up and posting the Podcast today, and when I opened up the master file for the podcast it told me that I had a lot of useless data that it had found and could it delete it. I said yes. It then let me take a look at the podcast…and the first half hour of it was gone!
I got rid of Norton Utilities a while ago because I was sick of paying for it over and over again, especially when every function of it that I used could be easily done by a free program. With one exception: Norton Protected Recycle Bin. I love that feature, and I can’t find a free program that does the same thing. In fact, when I Googled to find a replacement for it, the top results are people complaining about it and considering it useless. Well, if I’d had a protected recycle bin, I could recover those files.
Fortunately, I had run off an MP3 for Erik to hear, so I can use the high-resolution version of that to work from. I hope you’ll bear with us if the sound of our podcast isn’t the best. The next one will be better.
