Waaaaah!
:waah:

Recently, we had to do a System Restore on our computer, because we were having so many problems. I didn't lose any of my documents, but I DID lose every one of my Internet Favorites (bookmarks). :verysad:

So sad. And I had LOTS of great links too. All those hours of looking online and finding sweet knitting patterns (and other things)....GONE. :pout:

So, now I'm trying to recreate what I can, but it will never be the same. I wish I had known that I would lose my favorites ahead of time. I would have made a copy of the file, and put it on a disk or something.
:help:

You have my sympathy AND my total understanding. That happened to me about three weeks ago. Our computer crashed and burned. We had to get a new hard drive and I lost not only my bookmarks but THOUSANDS of pictures.

It really sucks:waah:

Ohhh nooooo! Every once in a while (like every couple months), I save a copy of my bookmarks/favorites file on another drive. It's very handy because we've had to reformat C: a few times so have to reload the programs. I'd never be able to recreate the knitting links, and certainly not the other ones.

Thank you all for sharing my misery. :pout:
It's good to have friends. :hug:

Jan, I've already found some new patterns, by using the links you've given! :woohoo:

I feel for ya :waah: did the same thing and my son told me about http://delicious.com/ where you can bookmark everything and if your computer crashes it is off site so you don't lose anything. I use it all the time.And you can see other peoples bookmark too.
If you join you can go through my book marks if ya want.

I had the misfortune of having the same thing happen once. I immediately began using delicious.com and haven't looked back. I have now rebuilt my "library of knitting links" and am so glad that I don't have to worry about losing them again!

When that happened to me, my husband took the computer back a few days and my favorites miraculously reappeared.
