JUST GOT WORSE. Today the home is listed as "Sale Pending".
THE HITS KEEP COMING. My sister's primary income source (her art) just went up in flames...
...and by flames I mean her coffeemaker exploded and coated her room in boiling water, which dripped into her computer and fried it. I'm going to be up all night tonight doing data recovery to see if we can salvage anything at all.
I know this is a bit late, but if your work depends on your computer, for Vecna's sake make frequent backups. External drives, online clouds, both is even better, then now and then make backups of your backups. It's a bit of an hassle, but you'll be glad you did it when something goes wrong.
My backup setup:
Working folder is a dropbox, so constant online backups.
Daily backup to internal secondary drive.
Weekly backup to external drive.
Monthly backup to second external drive.
Her backup setup:
She tends to use Facebook messenger to send finished work so her phone has all her portfolio work. In progress work? Hosed.
This time around I'm setting up backups for her -_-
