A cautionary tale... Windows updates were set to automatic on my computer. One managed to corrupt my user account; I could not get in and could not access my data... One very sleepless night later, I managed to retrieve my data from the various back-up procedures I had in place. But I could not recover the computer because I had not created a Windows Recovery Disc. It had to be returned to the manufacturer who managed to sort it out.
The lesson? Always back up your data. Create a Windows recovery disc. In the last two days I have encountered two people who have lost over a thousand treasured photographs because of lack of backups. You know it makes sense.
