Well, it happened, I finally caught some nasty bug and my system went down. I have spent the last few days posting from other computers, besides my main PC.
Today I did a system restore, ran backups, and went through the whole nut roll of getting my system back.
Much to my chagrin, I was only partially successful. I managed to get my OS reloaded and my D drive which housed all of my music is fine, but my main C drive lost a lot of data. To include software that will need to be reloaded.
I went through the process and all my data was sent to a backup drive (after the crash), but somewhere along the way something went wrong. When I tried to run the back up it didn't work correctly.
Major programs include:
Microsoft Office 2007
Vista Upgrade (Ultimate)
Plus dozens on lesser programs, iTunes, Firefox, FRAPS, Object Dock, uTorrent, Norton Internet Security, etc.
It will take a long time to get everything back up. I have already loaded Firefox, which is the first program I put on any computer!
