Sorry if teaching you to suck eggs.  I'm older than you anyway. ;)

All work files were allegedly backed up at work.  Back up to the back up failed at work. Good job I had a personal HDD on my desk at work  that I saved all dept files to as did all members of dept to theirs at my insistance.  Even bought them personal HDD each out of dept funds to do the same.

Even though I'll never teach again I have at least three copies of dept files.

Moral:  Never trust back up software.  The only safe backup is on multiple external drives under your control and even then only connected one at a time for backup purposes. 


I jumped off a bridge in Paris.

They told me I was in seine

Everything vital is backed up luckily.
Didn't think of the diary.
But considering it wasn't supposed to touch files it did a fine job

fixed, with the help of a kindly soul on mickeysoft (not a mickeysoft employee, just a regular joe who had the same problem)
had to install old chipset drivers, and instant touchpad.
