All those backups seemed a waste of pay.
Now my database has gone away.
Oh I believe in yesterday.
There's not half the files there used to be,
And there's a milestone hanging over me
The system crashed so suddenly.
I pushed something wrong
What it was I could not say.
Now all my data's gone away
and I long for yesterday-ay-ay-ay.
The need for back-ups seemed so far away.
I knew my data was all here to stay,
Now I believe in yesterday.

Another machine saved from battery death (the real-time clock/BIOS batteries are often leaky and the resulting corrosion can destroy the traces of a motherboard and nearby components).
Ideally the soldered-on battery is relaced with a solution that allows easy battery replacement, so it can be put in storage easily. Not sure yet what I’ll do here as there’s limited space in this Commodore PC-10C.
