That explains why tech comm should be paid the big bucks. ;-)

When my dad backed up his system in preparation for a clean install,
he didn't realize that only half of his folders made it to the
external drive. In addition to having a scattered folder and file
system, he also didn't verify the backup before formatting his drive.
