Yosemite MBA Upgrade Crash

I upgraded to Yosemite last night on my 2013 MBA and had the install crash part way through the process. I got in touch with Apple and they talked me through the process of going through recovery and reinstalling Mavricks (and formatting my hard disk), it took around 3 hours.

I lost a few important documents but fortunately my most valuable data was backed up on an external drive.

I now have Yosemite and it is working perfectly and have just finished loading thousands of photos back into iPhoto, good thing its a horrible wet day here.

I hate to be one to repeat it but the moral of the story is to remember to back up all data before your Yosemite upgrade. To balance things out and leave on a positive note, my girlfriend upgraded her 2012 MBP and had no problems at all. She did pronounce Yosemite as Yo Semite though which was hilarious and now I cant get it out of my head whenever I read Yosemite.
