Yesterday, just when I was about to start working, my laptop started acting up. Actually, it stopped responding! I tried to reboot 5 times and 5 times it froze. It wouldn’t respond to mouseclick, to keypress. All I could do was shut it down and turn it on again because the power button is the only one working.
Good thing my husband knows a lot about troubleshooting and came to my rescue. But while he was figuring out what the heck was wrong with my computer, he teased me and said we might have to re-format the hard drive.
“No, I have hundreds, possibly thousands, of files stored in that computer.“, I cried instantly.
“You don’t have backup files?“, he asked as if I committed the greatest crime against file storage.
Or maybe I did.
