    Hello

    Just a warning to all - if like me you have folders of wedding things on your computer.

    I woke up yesterday and some virus had wiped my profile clean - all my folders gone and yes I had not saved it anywhere else.

    I was devasted but luckily at midnight last night (I would not give up) I managed to trace one file which led me to the others.

    All backed up on numerous systems now - so just beware you could also loose everything you have worked so hard for.

    Would hate anyone else to have to go throught all the heartached I had yesterday.

    Ruth

    Very good advice - I back up every week.

    Viruses can be very nasty, but it's also worth bearing in mind that harddrives don't last forever and will fail at some point, so it's a very good idea to keep regular backups. [​IMG]
