  1. Windows Update deleted my Visual Studio files


    I was copying my (rather large) visual studio files from one drive to a backup drive.

    In the middle of the process (I fell asleep as it was late at night), Windows in their transcendent stupidity, downloaded some idiotic update and restarted the computer.

    Previous to that, windows asked me when I want to install the updates. I said, 9AM. Well, the updates started at like 5PM. OK, yes to their stupid updates.

    So I worked last night like 7 more hours on my program and then remembered, oh, back it up to my other USB drive. I started that process. Then when I woke up this morning I noticed that the backup was stalled at a file (db something or other, used by....god knows what but not important to my code) asking to try again, etc. I always say skip. Then Windows rebooted yet again for the "update". OK, coffee and news and now I got to that folder and my files are not there. The folder is empty.

    A friend of mine is going to try to recover the deleted files.

    What a nightmare. I worked maybe 20+ hours on the code and now, nothing.

    :)
