Backup! Backup!! Backup!!!

Yesterday, I did my usual routine of making a system image (using the native Windows utility) of my photo laptop hard drive and also copied my entire master photo file (labeled Nikon of all things) and subfolders to that same backup hard disc.

Right now, I feel like the smartest guy in Colorado - I'm copying that master photo file from the backup drive over to my laptop's hard drive.

I accidentally sent my entire photo file on my laptop to the recycle bin. I wasn't even smart enough (maybe I'm not the smartest guy in Colorado) to notice the warning that the file to be deleted was too big for the recycle bin and therefore it would not be recoverable.

After I get a few minor things things sorted out from this boneheaded mistake, I'm headed to get the other backup drive from the bank safe deposit box.

Right now, I'm feeling a little lucky and a little good.
