Computer

Well, it finally happened. Our main computer crashed. The computer with EVERYTHING on it. Our bank accounts, bills, family photos, and EVERYTHING. We knew it was coming, but we didn't know so soon. Unfortunately, nothing was saved on a back-up disk. So.. we pretty much lost everything. No we all have to share on laptop in my room. I have to extra careful now not to mess things up since it WAS my own personal computer. Oh, well. I guess we have to learn to give up and sacrifice for others. Anyone out there have any comforting words to say?

Hi Ellie. I'm so sorry about the computer crash. Probably the most important thing that was lost was the family pictures. My step-dad's computer crashed a few months ago and he lost everything on it too. It has not happened to me yet, but I fear it will someday. Maybe you guys will get a cool new computer soon.

That is awful news Ellie. I could help you with data recovery if I lived near you as I have to do it quite often. Dell D820/D830 is a good laptop. Be careful of any hard drive that isn't either IBM/Hitachi or Seagate. The others' track record isn't good. I speak from 11 yrs experience of hard drives crashing. I hope you haven't thrown the disk out. Ask around. You may get a company near you who can recover something... Good luck and sorry it happened. A dual layer DVDRW is a good option for backup too. Me
