Liz, I am sorry to hear that.
Please take no offense, but I know this is now why you will tell people that is is very important to keep multiple copies of your data which you treasure most...
I personally learned the hard way several years ago that it is vital to keep copies of important data.
Who ever thought that we would need to copy things digitally vs. paper,....
With the quality that hard drives are constructed with today, I hope that everyone does one of the following:
Run a raid 1 mirror setup
Backups of your data on an internal or external backup drive, or DVDs
A remote backup to a server.
I think this post got a little off topic, but none the less, I think everyone came away with good knowlege from it.
