Consultants always tell clients to backup, backup, backup, right?
So, I was reconfiguring things yesterday and said “oh, those are the wrong versions of the most recent files, I can delete them.” ZAP.
Guess what, they WEREN’T the wrong versions and since they were on the server I could not undelete them (unlike Novell, which had a server undelete function - “filer” - for years - saved a client more than once).
And guess what, my backup was a couple of days out of date and I had no backup for those particular files. Three hours of work or so down the drain that had to be redone. Fortunately, the work was mechanical, not drafting documents, so it was easy enough to reproduce. But a pain.
So, backup, backup, backup.
