Lost my Projects Drive


I work on a lot of projects.  Maybe too many to be honest, but they help keep my sanity.
So imagine my horror this morning when I could not find my projects flash drive.

IT's a tiny thing really.  8 gigs, black.  But on it were WORLDS.  It had my drafts to a couple of Old School projects I was working on. It had my complete draft of my "new" old-school campaign world "Eire".  Dozens of characters for a few different games. About 2  gigs worth of PDFs. A few reviews of some books I was reading.  Some new adventures for Ghosts of Albion.

Nothing I can't replace or rebuild in time, but irritating all the same. Well the review I have to restart from scratch and the three books I only have the last backed-up versions.

Not at all happy this morning.

Remember, that which does not kill us, drives us crazy... er... I mean, makes us stronger! Yes, that's the ticket!

I am sorry to hear of your loss. Be strong.

You know, if they can do it for pets, you'd think that they could put those tracking chips into flash drives.

I have three flash drives... Everything important is on at least two of them... If it's critical, it's on all three. + my PC.

Multiple redundant backups are the keys to being victorius in the computer age.

Your time invested, you cannot get back. Was that worth $20 and ten minutes a month?

$20 and ten a minutes a month would have saved all of that.

I have 3 flash drives, If it's important, it's on two of them, If it's critical, it's on all three and the pc.

Of course I had recovered most of the files already.
