Lost Files

Tonight I learned that one of the two hard drives that had failed cannot be recovered. I’ll have to check my notes, but I believe this drive housed the majority of my Toastmasters speeches. There are other files on here as well.

It’s sad. I was careless and it looks like some files I really would like to have are no longer ever going to be had.

No use in beating myself up over this. What is done is done.

I am building mechanisms to protect the data (I was doing that when these drives went), but it is all ephemeral. I am trying to make it last, but once I am dead and gone, with a mouse click whomever inherits this can do away with all my work.

Such is life . . .

Also blogged on this date . . .

One thought on “Lost Files”

  1. I do have my speeches. Think I have my stuff. There’s so much losing some isn’t really a concern. Most of the digital files are eve organized now. Things are good in this department.
