I am a computer geek. I have a home network complete with a server. I am sure that this is not uncommon nowadays, but among my peers and coworkers, I am Mr. Tech Support. Considering the fact that I work with databases and such all day long, this is kind of scary. But nevertheless, I am good at what I do.
But there is a reason that I am good at what I do: I seem to make all of my mistakes at home.
I decided that it was time to update the security on my server and that I needed restructure my file hierarchy. I moved a lot of folders around. I thought a folder was empty, but it was not. This folder was all of my program installation files. A lot can be said for backing everything up, but since it used to have its own separate drive that rarely got touched, I had never bothered. Fortunately, I still have most of the original installation disks.
