Its funny really, I woke up in a good mood. I started my day like normal. I fixed a pot of coffee, took a shower, fixed a cup of coffee, sat down and started working. I worked until 1:30pm this afternoon.
I have been saving all my work in a program that is called SEO Notes. All the features are cool and work well with what I need. At 3pm, our meeting was getting ready to take place. I went to my computer and tried to start my program. It said not data. I thought wtf. I retried it. I even did a computer restart. Nothing. I lost over 3 weeks of work.
I wanted to scream. The boss was expecting a report on my progress, and I had to walk into the meeting with nothing. He asked where is the work, I told him what happened, and said he could fix the problem and recover my work. He went to my office and checked my computer. He was in my office for about 30 minutes and couldnt figure what happened to it. He said hes never seen anything like that. The file is there, and it shows where I modified it at 1:30pm.
So now I have to retrace all my steps. and try to retreave the information the old fashion way. Back to the drawing board.
I was not a happy camper, I was angry, I was sick, I was going nuts. All that work gone in a flash. No I didn't do a backup. I never had to in the past. But, now I will. No matter how small or big the file is.
I learned a hard lesson today.
I hope you had a great day,
