Whew! That was close!
A few days ago, I updated my web site to the newest version of the blogging software. I did this by erasing the entire directory and reuploading the site. Unfortunately, I didn't backup the site first! (Bad, bad Rick!) This means that I erased all the images on my site! This meant that one of my most popular blogs - my review of the Spiderman 3 trailer, was missing all it's images! I thought I had lost all those images for good. Thankfully, a quick Spotlight search later, I found that I did have a backup of the media directory. A quick FTP and my site was restored! (I am backing up the site again right now!)
Thank God for the Mac's Spotlight search feature! Without that I wouldn't have found that backup on my computer! Yet another reason to love the Mac!
