    Just want to know what would you do if you lose your important data. For example, delete your cherished photos by accident; lose your doc files which contain your weeks' hard work due to formatted or damaged hard drive. Of course, I hope everyone here never have such bad luck. Just a poll. BTW, do remember backup your data regularly.

    A. Feel sad, but do nothing.
    B. Tell a friend about your bad luck. Then you feel better
    C. Ask someone who is good at computer for help.
    D. Go to an IT forum to post your problem,like techguy :)
    E. Search Internet to find similar situation & solution
    F. Go to manual data recovery service center.

    You may have other answers. :p

    Copy the files over from the backup and go back to work.

    Or, run recovery software and get the files back.

    For me, I would do C, D and possibly B.

    I had to edit my post. I probably would not do A, and don't know why I listed it.:)
