    I was really terrified when I realized what I'd done though. Those art files are over a year's worth of work!

    I don't think I'll be getting a lot of sleep tonight. That's a lot of panic fueled adrenaline.

    Sorry, didn't mean to freak you out. I may have lost a small amount, but nothing I can't remake.

    That's good. I wouldn't want your artsy stuff to be lost!
    But yes, backups are so important. :)

    Shhhhh, shhhhh... It will be okay *hugs* :)
    However, this is the exact reason why there is recycle bin. When you delete something, you can restore it. Except for when there are either too many files at once or when you're deleting too huge of a folder.

    Yeah, except with this project I've been doing a lot of switching between computers, and so it's on a portable storage device. No recycle bin.

    Good thing I clean up portable storage only when I need space I guess.

    *cybermental pats in the back* Feels so much like working on the wrong layer in Photoshop when we are very specific on 60+ layers!

    Wait cut and paste... if the art went in the project then it is re copyable back from where they got cut? (or you encrypt everything you work on without working back-up/copies?)

    I cut and pasted everything from the art project but only needed some of it for the game project, so I had deleted a bunch of files permanently before I realized what I'd done. Thankfully I had backups so I don't think I lost anything, and if I did it'll be small.

    *head is spinning* It happened to me often! ACK!!! Yeah, even if we have the back-ups, the hassle to retrace them back or their date of last copy just just kinda gives a lot of worries!

    Discovered something that I'd lost. An unflattened version of a sprite so that I could use the very lovely hair I made without the giant hat. Trying to split it up again but it's half gone.
