Learning From My Own Mistakes
Well, I may have told all those of you who read this blog regularly that you should always back up your presentations – just in case things go wrong, I discovered something else you should also do. Check your back up copy!
Yesterday, I was doing a class. I had prepared my presentation file the night before. I saved it and went to bed. I did not check that the file had saved correctly, because I had never had a problem with a backup file.
When I tried to open the file I got an error message “The file you are trying to open is not in a recognised format”
No matter what I did I could not open the file. I had to do the class without my presentation file. Not a complete disaster, but certainly an inconvenience.
Remember!!!! Always check that your back up file works. Do not make my mistake.
