A few weeks ago I lost all my content on my flash drive. The flash drive that holds my manuscript to ‘Crossing The Line’ and everything pertaining to the publishing of it. Thank heavens it was already published! This flash drive also held my almost completed and edited manuscript of the sequel to Crossing – ‘What Line’.
I have had no luck getting that flash drive opened. I know that content is in there. I just know it is. But…..I read an article over the weekend and maybe it isn’t in there after all. 😦
Jeff Werner from It’s Geek to Me says, “The simple truth is that no Geek has yet managed to invent a form of mass data storage that is 100 percent impervious to the ravages of time.”
Impervious – adjective – Not allowing passage into or through something. Not responsive.
Yep! That’s exactly the definition on my flash drive!
I believe him. He has not led me astray yet and I read his column faithfully every week in our newspaper. He once posted an article on how to remove those annoying pop-ups on your computer. You know the ones I’m talking about. It’s inevitable you get these at least once in your lifetime if you use a PC. Now my pop-ups have disappeared and my computer experience is so much better!
Go dig around in his site some. Click on that link I added a few paragraphs up. You may find something to help you with your problem. And please, don’t count on those flash drives to save your content indefinitely. My stuff is now whisked away to email these days.
Now if I can only remember my email password……forever!
