I think I made a big mistake. I was switching computers in my office and got busy and never backed up my data. My hard drive of course crashed. Long story short I seem to have lost about 3 months of reports from about a year and a half ago. I still have my work files, but I do not have a copy of the reports. I recently passed my AR exam here in Ca and when I got my letter requesting the work samples I about died. Of course they are from the files I am missing. I called and asked could I submit something else, anything besides from 1/07 through 3/07. I have tried to recover the data and was able to get somethings but I just cant get those files. Any advice or warnings? I am awaiting a response from OREA, but I would appreciate any input besides you should have done a better job backing up your files.
