Thanks to several blog entries that were scheduled ahead of time you have hopefully not noticed my absence from my seat at the computer! The hard drive on my shiny new computer, less than a year old, has totally failed and I have lost all my data since I last backed it up. And when did I last back up? Umm... months ago. So that's all my digi designs, family photos, music downloads, emails, you don't realise how much stuff until it's disappeared. We've checked and no, it's not recoverable. I've got the old pc set up now and I have one thing to say to everyone:
Always back up your hard disk - just because it's not your work pc doesn't mean it's not important!
I'd like to give a shout for Mo Manning's Digital Pencil, Bearly Mine Designs and for Makinghandmadecards.com; I've bought from allrecently and all have been quick to replace the data I've lost - so a big THANK YOU!
