This week disaster struck and it was all of my own making.
Michael inadvertently deleted all the files off his MacBook Pro forcing him to have to rebuild his system from scratch.
But thanks to practicing safe computing with backups and running LicenseKeeper, Michael was able to recover his data and successfully rebuild his system.
Fortunately, I did have backups for all my data and my OS X disks were on hand (I now know why I’ve been carrying them around for years)… I had quite a bit of fiddling to do, including re-entering registration codes. Fortunately I run the excellent LicenseKeeper software so I had everything in one place.
