That one time I hate technology…

It started at a meeting of school division in school administrators when my laptop needed to do an update. Everything was fine until the computer completed the restart, and then absolutely everything was gone from my computer. When I say everything, I mean everything. Unfortunately, I am not that diligent at backing up my computer, but fortunately the IT department was able to recover just south of 90% of the files. They put 754 word files, pdf’s, spreadsheets, and pictures all in one file folder.   I got interested in this computer stuff because it was supposed to make my life easier, and for the most part it has. Just not this week…

  1. Glad you were able to recover most your files! What an awful feeling. Have you considered using Google Docs rather than Word so that it’s saved even if your computer crashes?

    1. I love My Google Drive, however, I need an internet connection to access everything stored there, and at the Colony school, there is no connection beyond what I can get from my personal hotspot…

  2. I had a similar experience in terms of losing everything. I broke a usb that had over 5,000 word documents on it for work. I was able to ship it off to Ontario somewhere where they were able to recover all the files for $375!! I hated paying that much but I had no other option. I have since started using drop box, Google drive an external drive and about 3 usbs to ensure I have multiple copies of things. I hope you have better luck next week.
