I have very good news:
In early 2011 , my computer crashed, but recently I wanted to open a file that I had marked as hidden, so I set hidden files also can be seen. What turned out, the files from before crash were just over TWO YEARS hidden. I'm so thrilled, because early 2011 I burst into tears of the crash.

I love that feeling of discovering old files. It's like travelling back in time. You almost feel as if you were 2 years younger and less cynical.

Backups ftw.

In all seriousness, I usually hate it whenever I lose files. But after a while, files and files pile up, so I usually get forced to delete. I have an external HDD, but even that fills up quite a bit. Needless to say, I am a packrat on computer files.

I still have files from 2010 on my computer, but I don't have any OS installs from then. I have at least wiped my PCs once since last year but before doing that, backed up any files I wanted to have on the hard drive.

If it's something I need, I have it backed up. If it's not, I don't care.
Doctors Without Borders: one of the few charity groups you can rely on to actually do real good in the world.

"The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all." - H. L. Mencken, unsourced

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"- Isaac Asimov, Column in Newsweek (21 January 1980) [source]
