    BACK UP YOUR FILES!!!

     

    Over the weekend I spent hours working on my passport information booklets and boarding pass reply cards.

    They were finished and I was SOO happy with them. I couldn't wait to send them out.

     

    So, on Monday, the FI is on the computer, and it all of the sudden stops working. We take in to get fixed and the hard drive is GONE.

     

    It's possible they can recover the hard drive, but it could cost $1,000 ....

     

    So for any of you DIY people out there, back up your files.

     

    Luckily, I made my templates on my work computer and still have those. Bow it's just a matter of finding the right wording again. At least now that I've done it once it shouldn't be as hard the second time.

      Oh that is horrible. I feel your pain, that happened to me while studying for the NY bar exam.  I have always backed up since then.  Good luck with redesigning, it will be just as or better than the first one.  Good luck!

          I hate to hear that, but your recommendation is highly noted!
