Not according to plan....

My plan today was to get some papers graded and then have the rest of the day to sew.  The papers were graded by 9:30 am.  There was one thing I wanted to do on my flash drive for school so I stuck it into my lap top.

That is where things went south.

Last month I had taken my laptop to school to use while the kids were taking the state test because the keyboard is quieter.  Something went haywire and long story short, I had lost a bunch of files on my flash drive.  Thankfully I had save all of them to the district network a few weeks before and most of them were salvaged.

So when things went haywire today, I went to school to see if the files were gone again, and yes they were.  After running to Wal-mart, purchasing a new 16 GB flash drive (and some DVDs to move files from the laptop) everything is saved.

I am amazed at how much I had saved on the laptop (files, pics, etc) and how much I actually pitched.

Lesson learned... save and save often.

Have a great day!

Save and save often.... yes, definitely the "words of wisdom" we often tell students :)

Happy Sunday girl! I miss hanging out. SOON life will hopefully slow down for both of us to hook up online again :)

Glad you got your files back.
My DD got me an external hard drive to save things on and I never do it. I better get busy and get stuff I need saved and trash what I really do not need. Thanks for the reminder.
