Today is a tragic day.
I went to open iTunes and it said it couldn't open due to corrupted quicktime files. I figured a restart might help, but then windows couldn't boot! After that, windows tried to do a system recovery to fix all these corrupted files and what not, but that also failed! I had to revert to using my system recovery tool, deleting all my files on my system. Sadly, this erased all my minecraft saves.
But, I will survive. I will mine once again.
