Got the laptop back today with new hard drive. Of course all my programmes are missing, and most of my data. If you normally get the Parish Mag by email, then I'm sorry, but I've lost your email address!

Now we have to rebuild it! It's going to take months!

I dunno about Scotland's tarrifs and pricing but in the USA one can buy 16 mb thumb drives for about USA$20 each. Two of those will do a LOT of backup if you buy a compression program like winzip. (WinZip is not free for institutions.)

Any road: you are at the point where what I call "Beyer's Law of Redundancy" applies. To wit: There is always back up for the second crash.

Sorry for your trouble!
