Dean, you will be kicking yourself with laughter… How many times have you said “BACKUP YOUR WORK”, well now I am officially a ‘tool’!

I was reinstalling my OS yesterday and I have lost everything, yes everything. Music, Videos, Photos, College Work, Uni Work, Business Work, Settings Backup, the bloody lot.

Just got a quote to ‘possibly’ recover the HDD for £80, and the stuff on there is priceless, to the point I have constantly felt sick since it happened yesterday. Another thing that has dampened my spirits at the moment. Fingers tightly crossed on this one.

… now looks at buying a HDD to backup all of our computers.

    Well, recovery was sort of successful.

    Acorn Computers (Redditch) have recovered about 85Gb of my data, little did I know that it was going to be structured by file type in a folder, and then number 1 to infinity.
    I have lost file properties such as names, dates etc.

    I now have 75,000 files to organise and delete. I still think most of my important stuff has gone so I am really gutted.
    Cost £80 for something that is far from satisfying, let this be a lesson… BACKUP YOUR WORK!

    Heh, ouch. Backups are cheap, recovery isn’t.

    (I still need to get my linkstation plugged in and running!)
