Oh Woe is Me

My hard drive crashed last Thursday. We called Juan Caballero of Delta Computer Troubleshooters and he came and took it away. We had a chance to dust under the desk. Juan managed to recover some of the files, but not all of them.
We now have a new 232 GB hard drive in the same old box. I am working slowly to restore what I can. All the files in my accounting program are totally gone. I have to re-enter all of my invoices and purchases from January 1, 2007 to date. Most of the pattern files were recovered.
We had subscribed to a backup service – Mozy.com but they were unable to help us recover any of the data. What a waste of money. We are going to buy a backup storage device now.

Sorry for the late response to this; I saw your note in my comments the other day.

I am so sorry about all of this. What a nightmare!

Do you ever send out pattern files to customers in digital format? If so, I wonder if a past customer would help you recover some of the designs that were lost?

Unfortunately we all learn your lesson one second too late!

Good luck.

Things are looking up today, Thursday, May 17. I recovered all my pattern files!
I do have to re-enter all the business stuff, but it is possible with my good paper records.
I don't know what lesson there is to learn. I thought I was protected by the remote backup service I bought and used every night. However, they could not help me. Don't go with Mozy.com.

Thanks for your sympathy.

Dawn,
I'll be checking in on your blog to see what's going on in your part of the world. I could not find any way to send you an e-mail.
