One of the files I decided to clean up was "Events." I started by looking at the oldest files first, deleting them one after another. I got through 25 and reached the end of the folder. There were still 75 newer files in it. In a momentary lapse of consciousness, I clicked the button to delete the entire folder - and then emptied the trash.
And once that happens, there is no way to get it back. I chatted online with Yahoo and even offered money, but no dice.
I just spent an hour trying to reach out to everyone associated with events I have coming up. Which, when you have two books out a month apart, is a lot.
Think before you click...
