Please, if you are currently writing anything on a computer (or have in the last few days or weeks or months) and haven’t backed it up yet, do so now!
I recently lost (and I truly hope with all of my heart this loss is only temporary because of the many brilliant technology minds out there who can perform miracles) everything (and I pretty much do mean everything) I have written in the last four months. The drafts of my thesis are safe because I actually saved those at school. But, everything else disappeared when my hard drive crashed on Monday and all of my hard work for the last four months is now trapped in a tiny 4″ box.
I will explain more about what I lost and why I didn’t back anything up for four months in a later post.
But, in the mean time, please take my advice and go back up your work!
And, cross your fingers for me that my documents can be retrieved…
