Holy system failure, Batman


Two nights ago, our main PC had a total system failure.  There was no way to safely retrieve the data.  We lost everything that was on it when we had to reformat the hard drive.  (Feel free to blame us for not backing it up.)  In reality, there were only two really important sets of files lost:  the finances and Tom's school documents.  My husband can recreate, with effort, the finances.  Tom now has to recreate, with greater effort, a major school project -- one of those year-long, community service projects with documentation, etc.

Wow! What a hard, hard, hard way to learn a lesson about backing up. I'm so sorry. What a stress for your husband.

Seriously....what a mess. Hope it's not TOO much more terrible to get the school stuff back!
