Have you ever worked on a project all day and then had it ruined in one second?

Have you ever zealously worked on a project for a long time and then through a simple oversight or mistake the whole thing was destroyed? This morning I spent an hour updating my free movies blog. It was early, so I forgot to click the save button to back up my work as I went along. And, as I went to transfer some text from one page to the next, I clicked the wrong button and everything that I'd been working on disappeared. And, I accidentally erased the whole thing instead. Now that I know what I'm looking for it probably won't take more than ten minutes to replace. But, it's the thought that counts. And, the thought that I have to retrace my steps and do the exact same thing twice, is a little more than annoying. How about you?

Well not on a project, but on here. I did a discussion once and I put a lot of time and effort into it, forget what it was about now, but I had written a lot. I had finished it off and I went to submit it and pressed the wrong button on my computer and wiped the whole thing. I was gutted, there was no way I could remember all that I had written and I just did not have the heart to go through it all again!

Hello, That has happened to me a few times . When I am ready to send in my work for the day , or took time to write something out like a letter:it seems one of my cats will go behind the computer and shut it off . Very frustrating , so I understand.
