    I just dont know whats happened...

    The recovery programs dont seem to find much apart from a folder of photo i know were missing...unfortunately some of them seem to have been written over already.. :/

    In my mind as the laptops are pretty much standalone, unless they ask me, backup is their job. They all have shortcuts to their areas and staff common so can move stuff to there and that way it'll be backed up.

    Or play the blame game... think of an obscure issue they they caused and it is their fault... always good to have in the back pocket!

    Obviously as a professional trainer I would never advise to do that myself...


    ... oh damn!

    Oh dear!
    I have to say, I would probably say that the hard drive has died - not because I don't want to admit that I have done something wrong, it's just that the teachers seem to remember IT mistakes FAR longer than they EVER remember the good (and many) things that we do.
    Use it as a reason to send out an email telling people about doing backups etc
    Don't beat yourself up - we've all been there

    I killed the entire network by leaving a ADSL router plugged into the live system after a power cut!

    Yay me!

    Also, ensure they weren't using bitlocker on their files for protection, that would possibly create the situation you are seeing.
