Not happy, Microsoft

Microsoft and their ‘cloud’ have managed to overwrite my work with old files two days this week.

Not happy, Jan.

It’s like the Longfellow poem. When it’s good it’s very good indeed, but when it’s bad it’s horrid.

When it works Sherylyn and I can work on the same document at the same time and it’s very nice. But if you open the wrong document first, or fail to save in the right order, or you are connected to the internet on one PC and not the other (or the stars aren’t aligned, or maybe your karma is bad, or maybe the computer has no idea) you’re stuffed.

Like I said, not happy.

Update 24 November:
Thank you, Richard Gailey, from TechFleece – How to recover deleted or overwritten files or folders in your skydrive account.

You saved my sanity, and a lot of work.
