    loving it

    having tried many distros over the years and not really getting much confidence with linux i installed ubuntu 20.04 on my old laptop a while back and im loving it. my windows pc got hacked or a bad virus (im not sure which) but i lost everything on 1 of my external hdds which had all my business accounts, music etc. i had to reinstall windows then find everything again. but now i rarely touch windows and spend most of my time on the ubuntu laptop.
    so i'd like to thank all here for the much needed help and advice given

    cheers guys

    Please ensure you make backups of any data you wish you keep. User Error, hardware failure, power failure, etc can all cause data loss.

    I can't count the number of times I've started changing a file only to realize I was editing the wrong thing.

    Also, from my own personal experience, always have several back-ups that are completely disconnected from any computer. You might need these at some point.
