I miss you, fandom.

My computer crashed and I lost all my files.

The backup disk is not showing any of my recent files, including several stories that I was very happy with.

Oh my gosh! How awful! You have my profoundest sympathies. The same thing happened to me a few years ago, though fortunately I was able to restore most of the really important stuff because of my habit of pestering my friends with chunks of my WIPs, which they fortunately still had on *their* computers.

After that, I started a second, totally locked LJ, that nobody but me can read, and I keep all my WIPs backed up in it.

Good luck salvaging some of your own stuff. I mean it. *sympathizes*

Thank you.

Hey, that backup LJ is a good idea. I might start one of those. :)

8-X >:D< Not that it will help you now, looks like, but keeping a private-locked LJ especially to store your written work is a good idea. I don't trust this laptop as far as I can throw it (and I can hardly pick it up, if that tells you anything), so I transfer everything the second it's written, provided I don't just write on LJ to begin with. Virtual!fic is permanent!fic, more or less. *pets* >:D< >:D

*strokes your face*

Thanks. I think I'm kicking myself for not thinking of that in the first place. I'm going to go create another LJ right this second. :o(

Oh man, that sucks. You're the fifth person this month! It's like some cosmic evil going around destroying fan's computers.
