That was pleasantly easy!
In under half an hour I've got everything back on my hard drive, all my manuscripts safe and sound (and I've discovered more editing that needs to be done in that folder) and all sorts of other stuff, including my notes from the New Skills Academy that I thought I'd lost forever. It'll be good to do the backup on Wednesday and it'll be interesting to see how long it takes the virus scan to go through all my files since the reinstall.
That's me finished on the computer for the day now, so I'm off to bed and I'll see you all at some point tomorrow, for hopefully a considerably less stressful day.
Nite nite orl.
