Well, we have three computers in the house. DH and I each have a laptop issued to us by our jobs, and we have a desktop in the office. We have a network set up to connect all of them. It's primary source is the desktop. Well, for the last few weeks, my laptop has been acting funny. So, we decided it was a good time to backup files on all three computers. We spent free time transferring things to the network and burning them to DVD on the desktop (the only one with a DVD burner). We finished all this about a week ago.
This morning, the desktop crashed. DH was listening to music last night while he worked out in there and the music stopped and told him he had to download something to continue. As soon as he did, all kinds of crazy things started popping up faster than he could shut the windows. So, he turned it off and went to bed. This morning, the only way he could turn the computer on was in safe mode. So, he had to reinstall windows - wiping everything off of the desktop and network.
Now, while we did just backup everything, things we put on the network this week were lost - including a bunch of stuff I just downloaded for scrapping and all of my pictures from June. :cry: I am going to try to piece them together as much as I can - I uploaded most of the pictures to different sites, but I know some are just lost forever.
It really stinks, because we had just agreed to save things on the network and back them up once a month. Best laid plans... *sniff*
