Time for a public confession; I’m hoarder of digital stuff. I’ve keep all those MP3s that I never listen to, I’ve keep all my research that I’ve done for 10 years worth of writing about technology, design and whatever else I’ve done. And I back up, every single week. Of course, just because you back-up, doesn’t mean that human error is going to come along and kick you directly in the seat of your trousers. So, this weekend, while rebuilding a laptop, I deleted a partition, started it off reformatting it – it took sometime. When the machine rebooted, I was surprised to see that the same old version of Windows was running. I checked. Yup, the backup disk I had connected, with 10 years worth of research, photos, mp3s and pretty much everything, had gone – half a Terabyte of it – gone. Just goes to show – even a back up is worth nothing when you put an idiot in charge. Arse. Now, where’s my copy of “Enter the 36 Chambers” – I need to re-rip it.
