Tao Of Backup Wailing Wall Story
Never ever turust your defrag software

So I trusted it. Ran the speed disk program coz it said my hard drive was very fragmented. Well it was correct when it claimed to speed up my hard drive. After it fragged my HDD and totally wiped it clean - wouldn't even boot - and after finally rebuilding the MBR the drive was real fast. What you'd expect from a zeero'd drive. AND yes i didn't have a proper backup *sighs loudly* so it took me over a week to rebuild and I have lost lots of stuff that was important.
