Good luck and email professor explaining situation and accept your point deductions for late submissions. Then start doing it asap and sumbit it as soon as humanly possible.
* Back up your flash drives, and computer on regular basis
* email your h.w. to yourself before logging for the nite in case your computer or flash drive dies while you're sleeping
* drop box or google document store your important stuff
I learned from experience to prepare for the worst case scenarios and have 2 levels of back ups. Murphy's law is true that if something will happen it will its matter of when. Super important stuff gets emailed to self immediately, Flash drive is backed up to computer every day, Computer backed up to external once a week. Recently I vs been using dropbox and google docs and icloud
Lets see in my 2 years of nursing school
I've Had to replace the following electronics: 2 blackberries (i dropped one in toilet), 1 computer, 4 flash drives (lost, stolen, destroyed, failed), 1 printer, 1 scanner, 1 keyboard, 1 external hard drive. There was the 33 pg paper that some how didn't get saved on my flash drive or i swore i did but never the less at morning time its no where to be found, the flash drive that fell apart in 3 pieces as I pulled it from my computer. You get the idea.
