Here's another reason I like working on computers.............
I just pulled several thousand pictures off an unbacked up hard drive that was inoperative.
Pictures of my client at her wedding, her mom's last birthday party before she passed away, etc.
Of course she is gonna get a bill for my services but it sure feels good being able to help someone who thought her stuff was gone forever.
They are also going to get the "back up your stuff" lecture when I drop off the laptop:-)
Data doesn't exist unless it is stored on at least 2 separate hard drives.
I've already learned that lesson.
