Jake - 1, SanDisk Flash Drive - 0

My dog just killed my new 8GB USB flash drive. I'd had it less than a month, and had about 4 GB worth of data on it from my desktop PC, most of which I had yet to copy on to my laptop. I left my laptop on the settee, with the flash drive connected to a USB port on the side. Jake leapt up, and one of his paws landed squarely on the flash drive. There was a loud cracking of plastic, and the drive snapped, leaving just the USB connector, and a tiny piece of circuitry, connected to the computer. Grr.

So, I now have to buy a new drive, and transfer all that data back over again. I hope I copied it, rather than moving it. Otherwise, I'm effed. Damn dog. My fault, really, for leaving the flash drive attached.
