If It Weren't for Bad Luck ....

I'd have no luck at all. Isn't that how the song goes???

My computer died on Friday and we had to restore it from back-ups. Except that the back-up of my data file for my accounting program for the business was corrupt. We tried most of the weekend to save it, to no avail. Finally, running out of time, we had to get the computer set up so I could use it for work. I lost 11 months worth of finacial data for our business. Fortunately, I have the records to reconstruct it all ... but it is an enormous amount of work gathering and re-entering it all, and somehow, I have to find a way to get all that done and keep up with my regular work load.

Not having a good time here ..... sigh.

Oh dear Terri, I am so sorry. Mine did that a few weeks ago but I had it all backed up with that Carbonite program.

I think this is the thing we all dread happening - hope you are able to get back on your feet quickly - so much precious time wasted!

Oh Wow! I am so sorry that happened to you. I'm definitely going to do a back up today. I'm not running a business though... I'll be thinking of you and sending you virtual hugs and back rubs!
