I had a productive morning revamping an old Course and fine-tuning one for later this week, so I was well-ahead. I used the time to start work on trying to solve the problem with Ann’s PC. It’s been suffering from random re-boots and ‘forgetting’ drive ‘e’.
I know for certain, it’s not a software problem, so I turned my attention to the hardware.
Fortunately, those nice people at Aria delivered the replacement hard-disk this morning (I only ordered it on Saturday), and I set to work. Only time will tell, but the installation and data transfer fortunately went without a hitch. As it’s a Maxtor, I used their free Maxblast software for setting it up. After installation, what was immediately obvious was the data transfer speed! It took almost FOUR hours to copy the data from the old hard-disk and just 45 minutes to copy it back. Impressive stuff!
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!
