If I am not around for the next couple days it is because I am in a dark corner somewhere sobbing my eyes out!
Ok, not really! I totally know that crying will not undo the fact that I just entirely deleted EVERYTHING on my computer! Pictures...gone. iTunes...gone, Quickbooks....gone, forms upon forms made for work...you guessed it, GONE!
My computer started acting up really bad yesterday. I finally gave up on it when it stared shutting itself down and restarting on its own. However, if you click on anything...OFF it goes.
So this morning while nursing my migraine I decided to see if it was better and see if I could do a "restore" like I had seen Ryan do. Welp, come to find out...I am computer illiterate! Didn't click on the "advanced" button. Instead just clicked restore and POOF! Computer is stripped, stuff deleted and taken right back to straight from the factory status! Ok, I am going to puke...No, no I am not! I am going to be thankful that I have this blog where the majority of my pictures are stored anyway, be grateful that most forms are printed and sitting in a file, and well, I guess start over with my music collection and everything else. SIGH!
SO, lesson learned. If I don't know EXACTLY what will happen I will REFUSE to click it! This is a hard lesson! I am just thankful for a patient husband. He just said, Well, lets see if we can pull up anything from the back up from 10 months ago (yes, we should back up more often, another lesson learned) and start over. No big deal. He is better than I am. If HE was the one to have deleted, I am sure I would have let my frustrations show. Hmmm, seems like this is a day for me to learn A LOT!
So, for the next couple of days we will be installing, saving, looking for and building our computer back up to the point that I can work again! Sniff Sniff....until then....
