It's dark at 5:30 am and I'm one not to have many lights on in the morning. Yesterday I wished I had as I knocked my Dell laptop off the kitchen counter and it hit the hardwood floor with a loud CRASH. I stood there in the dark and began to hear a Click - Click - Click from my computer; a sound it never made before ­čÖü

I picked it up, opened the lid and was greeted with a notice "Hard Drive not detected."

Thankfully my warranty from Dell covered the hard drive and I'm supposed to get a replacement.

Once I replace it I will log in to Carbonite and begin recovering every one of my files. Because it backed up then night before, and I hadn't changed anything, I will have lost nothing.

Did your files backup last night?
