This forum seems to have a huge problem with "computer crashes" or hard drive failures. Why aren't you guys using Dropbox to keep your stuff safe? Creating an account is free and you get 2GB off the bat (more than ANYONE drawing MSPaint ships needs). Dropbox is no longer a viable upload service (with the public folder gone) but its cloud storage/backup capability is what really makes it useful.
There's basically no reason to suffer loss of data in 2017 with free cloud storage platforms available like Dropbox, Google drive, MS OneDrive, etc.
I forgot to say I had all my drawings in the public folder, after my hard drive crash and replacement, the public folder had gone completely and not changed to a private folder as I thought it would. Should the Public folder have disappeared completely?
