Dear Lifehacker, Three or four years ago, my Macbook died, and because I was an avid user of Time Machine, I was able to retrieve virtually everything I cared about from my external hard drive, except my photos. Because this tragedy happened to coincide with a software update, the updated photos couldn’t access the old photo library that was stored on the other drive.


Website archive services such as the Internet Archive: Wayback Machine are incredibly useful for when you need to see old versions of sites - either for nostalgia or because you're looking for a specific bit of information that has since been overwritten or deleted (such as a story you wrote for a former employer, for instance).


Dear Lifehacker, I use Google Drive quite extensively, and I am now close to the 15GB limit. I have deducted that the main offender is numerous emails with attachments - as a lot of these are quite sensitive (job applications for example) - I don't want to just delete them. Is there any way to bulk forward them to Evernote, or otherwise save them locally?
