Francis Ford Coppola's computer backup stolen

I feel his pain! I would be devastated if my backup hard drive was stolen. Please join me in praying for it's return:

Film director Francis Ford Coppola has appealed for the return of his computer backup device following a robbery at his studio in Argentina on Wednesday.

He told Argentine broadcaster Todo Noticias he had lost 15 years' worth of data, including writing and photographs of his family.

A script for his latest film Tetro was on one of the computers taken, along with camera equipment.

But his publicist said copies of the script were saved elsewhere.

"They stole our computers; they got all our data, many years of work, said Coppola, 68.

He said the backup that rested on the floor in his offices at the Zoetrope Argentina studio was just "a little thing but the information is (worth) much time".
