Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, got the really lousy news today that my hard drive is not only shot, but the technician can't even retrieve a single bit of data........I'm SO upset!
I've had to use my husband's computer and go in and temporarily shut my Maggies Studio shop down. Why? Because, I've lost everything I had...my photos, my word documents, etc, etc. I did have some of my stuff on a jump drive but like an idiot hadn't done a back up for about one and half months....so up to that point, we should be able to salvage some stuff. I had so many programs and all I'll get after the new hard drive is installed is Microsoft Office and my AVG free anti-virus. I now have to pray I can locate all the other software discs and will have to re-install but won't have my previous info. I can't tell you how upset I am at the moment!!
It goes back to what I've always said which is computers are a necessary evil. I guess I know what I'll be doing for the next few days.
After this ugly episode, I've asked my nephew to find me a software that I can purchase to automatically do back ups and will also look into purchasing an external hard drive as well.
I could rant on and on, but it's not going to change a thing....Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!
