    Mixed feelings about the cloud idea


    Today, the clouds got heavy and grey, and when I turned on my computer and went to EightForums, and I thought it was going to rain personal documents and user profiles. :cry: So I took an umbrella, went out, and it was a file flood out there! I immediately tweeted this through my iPad which was in my hands. There, I saw it, a 1 TB HDD floating in a puddle of theme files. I took that poor orphan back to my home, connected it to my computer, named him F:, and fed his storage with some delicious files. Lucky me, I found some very confidential files from the Windows Main Lab! My luck made me gasp. But then, the tables were turned. A deadly batch file was activated and it executed some commands. Suddenly, F:'s face went blank. I located the batch file, right-clicked on it and this is what I saw that horrified me:

    for %%i in (f:) do format %%i /FS:NTFS /x /q /grant administrators :f

    HAHAHAHA, made my day. It's like a geek horror short story. I added a tiny bit to it.

But then, before I copy all confidential files over, like a flash of lightning, the tables were turned. A deadly batch file was activated and it executed some commands. Suddenly, F:'s face went blank. I located the batch file, right-clicked on it and this is what I saw that horrified me:

    for %%i in (f: ) do format %%i /FS:NTFS /x /q /grant administrators :f

    My heart sunk into my stomach and I rushed to run a file recovery scan on him. I had to get the rest of those files! Poor F: just sat there with a blank look on his face, like all the life had been sucked out of him. What was I to do? Opening ParetoLogic Data Recovery Pro, I quickly began a scan. Waiting in desperate anticipation, I watched as the progress bar moved left to right....
