Something horrible happened to me last night. I accidentally deleted all the source files for my comics stored on my hard drive. I’m a fucking idiot! The 72dpi images are all online, but the PSD’s, original scans and the 300dpi images that I was saving for future publishing endeavors – gone. FML.
So, FYI, this might put a damper on me updating on Tuesday as usual.

Your files might not be lost, as long as you didn’t add/create or install anything else, they might still be recoverable. I’ve recovered files before using this application but it’s Windows only (I’m sure there’s a Mac equivalent if that’s what you’re running).
Thanks for the tip, Syberz. Unfortunately I used my computer extensively since the incident. I was able to recover about 1/3 of the stuff that wasn’t backed up already. It wasn’t a TOTAL loss. Just highly annoying and depressing.
You should look into getting a Dropbox account. It stores all your stuff online and you can access it via ANY computer & has an app for phones & tablets.
Once on your computer it acts no different than any other folder so you can drag, add, edit, etc.. just as if you were using your computer.
Just a tip for avoiding things like this in the future.
