Yep! You guessed right. VIRUS!!!
How did it happen? Well, my daughter borrowed my USB for school and silly me didn't think of scanning it for any infections first. BOOM! In a blink of an eye all my files were corrupted. Just imagine my reaction when I was told that my laptop had to be reformatted...tears*tears*tears. Why? Because very very silly me never ever took the time to make any back up files (and to think I even mentioned in my last post that hubby bought an external memory just for this purpose). Hayayay!
Here are the two lessons I learned in the 2nd week of the first month of the new year:
- Be diligent in backing up files (i.e. letters, documents, photos , et al.) no matter how tedious it may seem.
- Take proper precautions. No one is immune to viruses...computer and people alike.
