Ooooh...sorry to hear about that one. I fear this sort of thing and as a result use different computers for different processes. Everything must be burned to disk unless you have an original.

I couldn't live without Dreamweaver...I'd hate to go back to Frontpage.

Windows had a major brain fart on my system. It would only boot up to a black screen and a mouse. Pisser. I tried a bunch of fixes from the online help desk, and nothing would work, and since I hadn't backed up my docs recently, I was screwed.

I ended up doing an expensive fix, but I recovered everything I lost. I installed two matched drives as a redundant RAID so this will never happen again, and installed the original drive as a seperate hard drive. Then, I formatted the RAID, and installed a fresh copy of Windows on it. Now I gotta go back and install all my apps, and I can't find my copy of DreamWeaver, so my web site development is all on hold.

Ahhhh, Computers....
