Wait guys, don't kill the poor man!

I use git, all my work is on RAID 1 (2 hdd, mirrored) and on top of all, i backup everything on crashplan.

Yesterday i had exactly same problem (although the cause was a system freeze): 2 files i've been working on for last 20 minutes or so were gone. (000 fill)

Crashplan was unable to help me (even the product is great, the UI is dumb sometimes), latest version on git was ~ 30 minutes old. Everything sucked!

Solution was built in windows: right click on the file => restore previous versions. Wasn't enough to restore everything but it restored like 90% of the files. Which was good enough!
