didn't tell me it was there to retrieve what you didn't backup.

While I hate to ask this, I have to. Given your prior loss I think you would have seen the issue of not backing up on a few things or locations. For me I use Dropbox since it syncs with my phone, desktop and laptop. Even if I lost the dropbox account or phone and even one of the laptops I'd still have what I have on the dropbox folder on the last machine.

It's time to really consider backup this time round.
