my two year old laptop had been giving me some trouble lately.
showing me warnings like,
"operating system not found"
"windows shut down to prevent damage"
"unmountable boot volume"
and about a week ago it finally....
"bit the dust,
bought the farm,
(that would be from the farmer in the dell)
gave up the operating system,
kicked the hard drive,
dead as a doornail."
Oh and wouldn't you know...
i NEVER backed up anything!
did i mention
yes, that would be the last two years worth of pics
including all my antique & junk finds, repurposed goods, holidays, family vacations, etc.
oh, i was so SICK!
how hard would it have been to plug that little zip drive in
and load it with at least my pictures?!
documents and files can be re-created
but as you know pictures cannot.
and btw most of the pics i had deleted off my camera..so no backup ANYWHERE!
(insert angels singing)
there is a rainbow in the midst of all this
|on our way to MA last weekend|
if you look to the far right, you can see the double
since sending my laptop to the "computer hospital"
(aka family techie friend)
he WAS able to pull off ALL the important stuff
(doing the happy dance now)
i will then have a new hard drive installed into my laptop
and have everything re-installed
the moral of the story is:
BACK UP YOUR HARD DRIVE
my bloggy friends!
and have a wonderful Sunday!
i hit 100 followers yesterday..woo hoo!
more on that later
