Thank goodness for Acronis!!

I know it has been said many times in this forum that back ups are vital. I'm so glad I did.

Hands up, I made one heck of a mistake! I decided it was time to make a new workbook for my accounts while I had a couple of hours free. So I copied (so I thought) this year's book into a new directory, whipped out all the data and started converting the dates from 07-08 to 08-09. Most of the way through the exercise, I thought it was time for a cup of tea, saved and closed for a while.

Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea culpa!!!

Yes, you've guessed it, I had not made a copy; I had done a move! Panic!! No, I remembered I have Acronis and my last backup was only a matter of a couple of weeks ago. Phew!

Aren't I glad that I had a backup system? With not too much work, I managed to save the day.

Anyone else been as daft?
