I can’t believe it….

Ok, I about had a heart attack. I am organizing my patterns and printing out ideas. I wasn’t paying attention, and I heard something fall on the floor…My external hard drive!!! I just reformatted my computer and everything I have is saved on that external hard drive…pictures, files, school papers & grades, EVERYTHING!

I took a deep breath and picked it up off the floor and checked to see if I could access my files, NOTHING. The tears just started rolling down my face. Gone, all of it, gone…7 years of pictures, 2 years of school work and files, all my OneNote notebooks. DEVISTATION as far as I am concerned.

Just about the time I got my self together, I realized that in the fall the power cord cam out…I started laughing hysterically, plug the power back into the back of my hard drive and guess what? That’s right, it is all still there!!!!  I can not believe that it survived the fall, now if only my heart can recover :)

Sounds like its time to back up your backup! I had lost all my stuff not that long ago, my husband decided to shut the computer off with his foot on the power box (whatever that extention cord thing is called....lol) and I lost everything! Last few years of my daughters life was on that computer and I had never printed off a single picture! Glad yours is fine!

So glad you didn't lose everything after all. I've been there before, and I know how horrible it can be!
