I know y'all have been waiting at your computers for two days for an update. ::snicker:::
Thanks to the good people at Micropower, most of the files on my flash drive were retrieved. I was especially relieved to see that the 15,000+ word story I'd been writing was completely intact, because there were some files that just didn't transfer over the the new flash drive. Fortunately for me, I was saved a major meltdown and lots of work because I had copies of all of those files on my computer.
So what have we learned, ladies and gentlemen:
- Take good care of your things; and
- Have more than one backup of all your computer files.
I think once I get this new flash drive organized today, I'm going to store all my files in Google Drive too. I don't know that my brain could take this kind of stress again. Technology is great when it works, but sometimes it's finicky.
