Fuck. Fuck fuck fuckety fuck fuck bollocks.

I'm a bit pissed off.

Someone who shall remain nameless pulled my network cable out this morning, while sorting my phone out. Outlook went down in a trail of smoke, so I rebooted.

Ever since which, Outlook can't open the pst file in which I've been archiving my mail. For four years.

No problem, right? It's on the network, so I'll just get it restored.

Err, no - pst files don't get backed up on from our network, and nor do our home drives on the network. So that's two reasons why the file wasn't backed up.

Had I known this, I'd have kept the pst file on my local drive, and put zips of it onto the network weekly or so, somewhere where the backup will find them. Besides, it turns out that I shouldn't be keeping pst files on the network anyway. Sigh.

OK, let's see if the Inbox Repair Tool will do any good. I'm not optimistic.
