I know better

Post by billiebcc on Tue Apr 03, 2012 9:50 pm

So I know better than to not back up a document. I so know better. Well I write fiction stories, just for my own amusement. I have complete one complete "story" so to speak and I am on my second one the series, okay? I back it up regularly to three separate sources. Most of the time when I write it's late at night hubs is gone and kids are sleeping. SO we can all see where this is heading right? Yup my second story I was 120 some pages into it and my laptop crashed. I can only restore to page 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Are you kidding me? I can't find the freaking document anywhere. I'm so mad I could scream or cry, I prefer to scream though.
Argh!

I hate re-writing something I already know how and what happened!

Thanks for reading.

I lost half a novel last year in a similar situation. Never did get back to working on it. I feel your pain.

Oh, that does sound painful. So sorry. I kill a few trees & print regularly & keep it in a folder. Now... if the house burns down I'll probably lose the papers, computer, back-up drive, etc...

You should be able to do a search on the hard drive for ONLY documents of that type, created on that date- which should drastically cut down the number of placed to look. It MIGHT still be there somewhere.

Thanks Dean! I did try to search that way but I'll have my one friend who is a tad more tech savy than myself try one more time. Smile
