I'm happy to report that the restoration of my infected hard drive was (nearly) a complete success. I haven't done a complete inventory yet, but it appears that only a small number of audio files were lost. Fortunately, the ones I have found so far that were unrecoverable were made from records in my personal collection and can be duplicated.
All of my photographs and personal files were recovered as well. On the down side, all of the emails I have received in the past month are lost as well as my address book. Those can be recreated. If you had sent me an email and have not received a reply, please resend. I apologize for any inconvenience.
Many thanks to the riders on the Bus for your warm wishes and support. Special thanks go to my son, Zac, who gave up the past few Saturdays to come down to the house and help out the old man. There is an advantage to having a son who is head of cyber-security at a major credit card/banking company!
