In the category of "just shouldn't be possible"

I selected the wrong option on the MSN Money site. It deleted accounts it shouldn't have deleted. I frantically tried to back out of the choice, but instead my desktop synchronized the deletion from the web-site. This deleted my checkings, savings, equity lines, and credit card history from my file.

Then, Money got confused, threw an error, backed itself up, and quit.

Yes, that's right backed itself up! So now all three places my valid data could be--online, in the file, and in the backup--have been scrubbed.

Basically my only hope is that I can call Microsoft and have them restore my account to the state it was before this cascade of chaos--and that the data can also be sent back down to my desktop file, intact.

Oh, and guess what--that support team doesn't start answering the phones until 8 a.m. tomorrow.

I am so screwed...I am seeing the distinct, high probability of countless hours poring over paper and electronic bank statements recreating and reconciling my data.

    When W gets back to us from Tennessee, this young pup will be joining us, becoming a Livestock Guardian Dog for the chickens.

  • Peeking out

    We're looking forward to meeting her, too.

    I think Pam's not trained to react to the back side of a phone the same way one responds to a camera.
