How To Ruin A Really Good Day

The day was flowing nicely and smoothly, and I was starting to make headway in the content I was writing that day. Then around 15h30, my laptop crashed and the whole date/time system changed to 10 January 2006. No worries, I thought, reinitialising the machine etc.

Except, about five hours of work that I'd one on the day was missing. I used every search option on Windows and Word. No joy!

A big fat THANK YOU to Tavasa forum member Nelmarie Pohlmann, who sent me a programme called File scavenger, and then spent hours helping me look for my documents. Your instructions were very clear and easy to follow and I expect, they will be useful in the future. Pity the results were disappointing, in this case.

Yep. spent the day fixing laptop ( now it works fine) and recovering lost work. And today is a new day, and hopefully, a better one :-).

Hi Damaria, this is my first visit and want to let you know how much you are already inspiring me!
Love you name, it sounds like Portuguese.
My PC started crashing, too, lately. Hope this is just a
Winter thing...:)

I will contact you soon.
