RIP 400 pages of my novel

Recommended Posts

TFW you decide you're finally going to crack down and finish that novel you've been working on for 6ish years.

Plug in the external where you backed it and all your databases on (I have a lot of characters :P).

Drive corrupted.  Everything gone.  Run all disk repairs and diagnostics.  Drive not even accessible.  Google Drive, DropBox, OneDrive...didn't back it up.

I had 400+ pages done of 700ish planned.

:(

Oh well...needed a reboot anyway.  Changed a lot of my own lore.

I have Mozart to keep me company.

Nothing beats multiple physical backups (one live copy, two rolling backups at least - with at least one set off site) that you control.

Yeah, I got religion about that shit awhile back.  Sorry for your loss, bro.

Yeah I had a hard copy...on my external...which is now a paperweight.
