SO where did my files go? I spent most of last week (half term) writing a new section for my Film & TV course called Video Technology, quite a lengthy affair to say the least as it needs to follow the BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma criteria.
Part 1 being Television Standards, Part 2 Broadcast Systems, with Parts 3 & 4 to follow. I always save my files to a 32Gb USB drive, then copy them to My HDD on my iMac and then onto an external 3Tb drive, that way I have a couple of back ups and don't normally worry, however, today I go to college with the intension of printing of my slides, I open my USB drive, open the Broadcast PowerPoint and nothing but the first slide, OOOOMMMMFFFFGGGG, I didn't panic as I know that I have the file backed up, or do I, if it's not on my USB drive and I copy everything over from that then that means I have the same on my 2 backups.
As I type this I am a little happier as both the backups have the complete presentations, so where the fuck did the slides go on my USB Drive? so I just backed up the back up onto the USB drive but I now think there maybe an issue with the USB as a couple of weeks ago I gave it to a another tutor to look at a file and he said it was not there? and he was correct so I just made the assumption that I had not copied it over, however, that may not be the case, it could be that the USB drive is failing, it's only a few months old so it will be returned and I expect to have it replaced.
This afternoon I intend to chill out to my music and repair another watch, watch some TV, drink some Wild Turkey and eat Stilton & Grapes, the last 3 items are on the list of don't let Den eat or drink these, but thats only the Doctors opinion, so Off to find my iPhone, and start the music.
