I CRASHED!

Can you hear me silently screaming!! My hard drive is GONE! Thank goodness for my blog and spare computers in the house. But that dosen't help me with all the lost emails, word documents for classes, pictures......several years of work. I'll have to rise from the Phoenix so to speak and start all over again AND learn how to "back up" my work. I've never had to do that, but my husband can help. If some of you emailed me and didn't get a response now you know why. Please email me after tomarrow, same email. My computer guy installed a new hard drive and I can pick it up tomarrow. Picture the Van Gogh painting "The Scream".........................

What a total bummer. I don't know how you plan to back up your work in the future but I have an account with Mozy. I like it because I pay aprox. $4 a month and it automatically backs up my files. I've never had a crash though so I don't know what it is like to restore everything. You might look into something like that?

Great that your class was such a success and that you sold some things! missing you and all things crafty in Orange County ... tho I do have to say that there's a wonderful craft thing going on up here ... just haven't gotten out to see it all. love you ...

aww..how terrible, Robin!...
that must be awful..and trying to remember what you had!
When you get set up again...might be great to get a little external hard drive...you back up things to it..they make it so easy to use...i got one for around $100 other day..at our staples..a nice flat little piece..holds 500 GB
of course...might be better prices in the US!...everything is higher here in Canada!..
good luck, gypsy (jean)

Oh, I'm so sorry for you. I had to wipe mine recently and start over, but fortunately, I got to back up, but I've had that happen before and it's not fun at all. It takes awhile to for you to get back up and working comfortably, but your site looks like you haven't missed a stroke. It's beautiful! Take care! Arah
