I always take my PC for granted. I had made that mistakes quite a lot in my life, but still I can resist committing it. I never backup my pics, personal data and music or movie, anything you say. And Eventually, I get my eyes filled with tears when a partition vanishes or the hard drive just don’t boot.
So, the story is simple. My laptop has gone wild with the Xp installation and I had to upgrade it to Windows 7. Though I liked it, I inevitably didn’t like the D: partition vanishing like smoke ring. It had all my backup(And I was so stupid to back it all up in the same hard disk).
Conclusion : Lost all my camera clicks, accounts. whatever I can name on. Now, I am trying for the last 24 hours to recover at least a few of the valuable data using some of the data recovery tools available on net.
Moral : Periodically backup your valuables. But I wonder, Its possible with a PC or laptop, is it meaningful in real life? Have a thought.
