Ma, someone ate my files
We came back quite late last night after tahlil at Malaysia Hall. As usual, before turning in, I checked my emails. The laptop gave the usual friendly and chirpy jingle before I signed in. Everything seemed fine. Then I looked at my desktop. The usually cluttered desktop with all manner of files, folders and documents and programmes seemed unusually tidy. There were two rows of icons; mozilla firefox, YM,Web n Walk Stick Manager and FileZilla Client among the most important ones for me. The rest - my writings, precious pictures, invoices, work - archives of work - all gone.
For a while I sat on the bed thinking they would reappear when I restart the laptop. It didnt and I was seized with panic. Husband and google came to my rescue and I had to spend £41 (with VAT) to get a programme that undelete deleted files. Throughout the night, I undeleted deleted files and saved them onto discs as advised.
Oh, how I took things for granted!
