Two years ago I purchased a laptop. I transferred everything from my previous computer onto that laptop.
Everything that I've written, pretty much in my whole life, was now on that laptop.
Last year I took a trip to see my family in Pennsylvania. While I was gone, something happened to my laptop. When I came home it wouldn't turn on. Needless to say I was sad and slightly panicy.
I hate to think about everything that I had lost on that computer. And, at the time, we didn't have the money to have it looked at.
I tried a couple things that my Dad suggested but nothing worked. It seemed everything was lost forever.
Well, Monday we took a ride to a town a couple hours from here to check out the Best Buy (because we don't have one) and eat at Cheddars (Excellent restaurant and we don't have one of those either).
I grabbed my old laptop on the way out and prayed that the Geek Squad would be able to do something with it.
I set it on the counter and told them my problem. He tried to turn it on and it wouldn't work. Then he told me something that gave me hope. He said that they could try hooking up the hard drive to see if their system would read it. I said YES!
He took it away and I prayed and prayed and prayed it would work. Then he called me back into the work room. There on his screen were all my files and pictures that I hadn't seen in a year!
Sooooo happy!! I gladly paid the bill to have my stuff transfered off the broken computer onto an external hard drive.
I now have everything that I had thought was lost forever. I'm so very happy.
Thank you so much, Geek Squad!!
