The Sandisk Cruzer 4GB flash drive was my lifeline; it held all of my important files. Last night the drive died and I lost nine months of work and financial information. I obviously should have been backing up those files, but I had never experienced that sort of failure with a Sandisk flash drive. I have an older Cruzer micro that just keeps on working after four years of abuse, so why would I expect anything else from the newer one?
Lesson semi-learned on backing up files. But mostly, I’m just angry about it because, hell that’s nine months of work. And finance tracking. And dammit, why would it fail?
Son of a bitch.
I hate technology some times, and I hate that I rely on it this much. Oh well, life continues, right?
