I had never gotten around to it even though I have an external harddrive, webhosting, a dropbox account and more. I figured.. Nothing will ever happen.

I built a new desk and bought a second monitor and the desk isn't done but its done enough to where i can move my stuff on it. Eager to see my new monitor I hold down my PC's power button while it's in sleep. Had I taken just a moment to think about that i was doing.. I would have thought before hand how now when I boot my computer only a few seconds I would have remnants of windows files slowly fading away in my ram (after being unplugged and moved)

Of course enough of the files were left behind that windows decided to try and recover my session (from before I hit sleep) and this tried to run corrupted files and bricking my windows. FANTASTIC.

I am now on my parents computer downloading ubuntu to try and save my wallet as well as well as some other equally imporntant documents....

Back up your wallets kids!

P.S the new monitor seems fantastic.

Lol, I'm glad the new monitor's nice. I'd suggest having only solid media backups of your wallet. Use a flash drive, discs, hell, I even have a copy of my wallet on my kindle lol. On a side note, encrypting your wallet can't hurt. So check out this tutorial if your interested.

I tried downloading that encryption software posted by that mod, Freeotfe I believe? I could not get it to download properly, it said windows wouldn't permit an unverified digital signature? Can anyone interpret that for me?

I opted with Truecrypt. It was pretty easy to set up and I haven't had a problem running the bitcoin appdata from the encrypted file.

I believe there are two ways to truly learn.

1. You can learn from knowledge.
i.e., You learn by observing things and/or by reading.
This is the best way to learn.

2. You learn wisdom.
i.e., You learn by experience.
This is the worst way to learn.

Thanks for sharing your wisdom, hopefully this will be some great knowledge for someone.

Do no evil,
