I just lost 5 years worth of files from work, college, 2 masters degree thesis drafts, 2000 photos, 1 year worth of lab research and everything else on my computer because it was cold, my hands were shaking and I accidentally dropped my phone on my PC, right where my HD was located. And of course I didn't have a backup. And it would cost around 1000 bucks to *try* to retrieve my files, with little to no guarantee it was work. Aaaaaand I have to buy a new pc. Huh. Guess I learned it the hard way.

I think your response wasn't "oh,no" it must be something like and then "FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF" and continue with longest f word you can say with one breathe

My biggest mistake was a switching of terms. I told support, "I have transferred all the data from the *large* hard drive to the *small* hard drive. Feel free to reformat the *large* hard drive." But I had it the wrong way around. They did exactly as I said and reformatted the drive with all the data on it. All of it. All the data. All. Years of work. And I didn't find out about it for two weeks. My onosecond came two weeks after my mistake. I guess that makes it an onofortnight.

I want to thank you for reminding me to save, just after I did it, my computer crashed, and the animation I spent working on all day today would have been completely lost

Im always scared that my backups could stop working when I need them because I only could afford an external hardisk as a backup, so I was thinking about having a backup for the backup but that would make me anxious all over again... It's painful...

Protip: learn how to dump *all* (both kernel & user) memory to a file on every machine you work on in a single command. That has saved my life a few times. Chances are good that you could have dug up most of your content that way, as memory is usually not emptied, but kept around until overwritten or until garbage collection runs. This works for databases, form fields in browsers, etc. Everything has to be stored somewhere :) And if it's not in memory then the same goes for disk storage (although be sure to know when to dump memory or raw disk, so that you don't overwrite your stuff on disk with your memory dump).

That's always this kind of story in Computer Science courses (or similar courses), and what I've always heard from these was that it was easy to restore the data using the database log

The thing is, you can divide software developers into two categories: Ones who have made that kind of mistake, and ones who are going to. Because the _only_ thing that stops you doing that is personal exposure to that visceral feeling of your stomach trying to exit your body by both routes simultaneously.

Last year I was working on a rom hack of an old video game. Using a tool I accidentally change a parameter out of range, now the tool I used to modify the parameter can’t find it (because it’s over the parameters its looking for) and the part of the game I modified is unplayable. I lost months of work just because I never took the time to make a backup.

One memorable onosecond of mine was when I finished a PHP script at 2:00 AM. I guess it was because I was tired, but somehow I managed to screw up so hard that the server crashed every time someone submitted a form. Awful time I had the next day.

I'm constantly backing up my stuff. And generally whatever program I'm using is set to automatically back up. But I'm really paranoid.
