OP here, the company does all the timekeeping online. The server went down and they were only able to restore it back to the end of November. I'll be keeping my own copy of hours from now on.

It's strange that they don't keep at least one other copy if they're sticking to paper time sheets. Take a photo of your sheets and keep it on your phone in case this happens again. It may also be in your (and your company's) best interest to suggest an online scheduling system like Hot Schedules or something if budgeting allows.

storing business documents on the internet is a really fucking bad idea; but if you store them onto a desktop without using the internet, it's relatively safer (although, paper is the safest option as it cannot be hacked and has the ability to be disposed of in a safe manner; OP's story shows a lack of responsibility with such documents (on the company's part), which shows the fatal flaw with this form of document managing)

My place of employment has things stored on a server - it's a very large company with numerous locations all over the US - and someone from HR at the headquartered location accidentally deleted the information of 500 employees. And, yes, I was one of them.

I forget what I did 5 minutes ago, so I always keep note as to what project I'm working on for how long each day, say 9:40am to 11am before I do something else. It helps a lot. Get a notepad and just note it down.

Encourage your company to do so electronically. Sorry op, I know it can be a pain. Try noting down things you did in a diary. That worked for me when I needed to fill in time sheets from a week or two in the past.
