Re: W10 crash


Google will give you 15GB of cloud storage for free.



I think pictures taken with an Android device don't count in the total GB.

Re: W10 crash


Clouds are pretty, but secure??? Too many breaches and clouds are prime targets for data gleaning. This site, although the company is in the cloud business, states there are still quite a worry factor for bad things to happen, at an astronomical cost to end users. https://www.datacenterknowledge.com/...-side-of-cloud

I agree with the convenience, but even this local loss for me tells me I certainly don't want to store anything where I can't touch it, and can't do anything about it.

Supers05, that is what I thought, too. Yeah $59 for the SSD and $66 for their labor. They had a 1Tb hard drive for about twice as much, but I'll never use that much memory, and the 240 is 100 times what I had to begin with

Re: W10 crash


Installing a hard drive is stupid easy. you have 2 plugs, they can only plug in 1 way, and each one can only go into the correct spot (their sizes are different to such a degree, youd have to be a complete retard to screw it up)

Don't forget the static protection. Then installing and setting up windows.

Some people are more comfortable with even basic things with electronics like this. They are just as uncomfortable with installing windows, even if some of us think it's easy.

Cheers!

Re: W10 crash


It was an HP Probook4540s so there is no bottom panel access to anything. It has to be exploded to access hard drive, RAM, everything. I was not doing it, period, but since they offered a deal I couldn't refuse, I am still using it. He said the computer, although a little aged was working perfectly (except for the worn keys). It does rather zip along better than the old hard drive. 8 second initial boot up as opposed to 30 to 60.

With my WD external and my thumbdrive for Quickbooks, I think I only lost 10 files. Happy about that. All pictures intact, Word files, Excel files, good.

Only problem, and I believe it is a disk problem, my Office suite won't load from disk. Downloaded Open Office and Thunderbird, and I am back up and running. All my emails stayed on the server and dumped when I got Tbird installed.
