The PC downstairs – Ann’s PC -has been playing up for ages. Random reboots and lot of freezing of the screen. Also, we kept running out of disk-space on the C drive too.
Neil introduced me to MaxBlast – a useful piece of software that allows you to do all sorts of things to a hard disk. Initially, I just used it to reformat the e drive because it sometimes wasn’t showing up in explorer. I discovered that MaxBlast can also be used to clone a hard disk, so that gave me the idea of buying a new drive, cloning the existing c drive to it and hopefully, that would help things.
A quick trip over to Novatech’s web-site and within minutes I’d located a 250Gb disk for under 35 quid to replace the ageing 12Gb one currently limping along in the PC.
The new disk turned up today. It took MaxBlast around 25 minutes to clone the disk and after a bit of confusion on my part about the boot sequence (Neil put me straight!), we were up-and-running.
A most rewarding day!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
