I had a hard drive failure yesterday. Some bizarre type of corruption that required a re-install of the OS.
Doesn’t sound like much when you put it that baldly. But, oh, the anguish, frustration, wasted time and embarassment.
At least I had most of my stuff backed up but only most. Fair dues to Mr Jobs and his crew. ‘Time Machine’ worked beautifully on the stuff that was backed up and I had other dumps to retrieve data files from.
V annoyed with myself over the things that are now gone forever.
Remember the golden rules of data – it’s not a backup until you have restored from it and you can’t restore from a backup you don’t have….
