Welcome back. Had the same thing happen. My old machine just gave up the ghost so got a new one. Hated Win 8.1 so just finished upgrading to Win 10. I back up all my mail, pictures, doc’s, etc onto a zip drive so at least I didn’t lose it all but just a pain to get back up and running.August 27, 2015 at 7:15 am #63153
Hey Bernie! Mine was Windows 7. It was a refurbished one that I had purchased a couple of years ago, but it kept crashing promptly every other morning when I woke it up! Aggravating! But I always got it going with a reboot. What happened I have no idea but the day it quit, my media player was giving me an error message so I went to reboot and the system somehow deleted the boot file and that was the end of it! I did pull the hard drive and tried to pull out the files and they were all unrecoverable! Something happened to it. I did not have a zip drive to back it up. Yes, I should have backed it up at least on to a disc…but I didn’t and now I lost a bunch of stuff! I did back up the computer I had before this last one and did get some files from it. I had a Lenovo some years ago, and the monitor quit but I did get the hard drive from it and was able to finally recover files from it and finally got the book i was in the process of writing so now I can finish that! I bought an external drive the other day when I got this one now..so I just got to start over with passwords and get going on stuff.
I can go back to some of my posts here to recover some of the watch and clock pics that I had lost in the crash, at least!
Wow! How we learn the hard way! 🙄 I will be backing this one more often…for sure! 😆August 27, 2015 at 6:24 pm #63154bernie weishaplParticipant
My old one was Windows 7 but you can’t buy anything anymore except Win 8 and 8.1. I am sure it won’t be long and Win 10 will be the thing. I bought this one and it had 8.1 on it so I had a free upgrade to Win 10. I did and glad I did. It has some 8.1 and 7 combined which makes it pretty nice.
Yes I back up almost every week. Of course I have my Quickbooks for my business also on here so can’t afford to lose that. Glad your back up and running.August 27, 2015 at 8:18 pm #63155
Ya, I had the offer to upgrade to Windows 10 also, but backed out of the offer because I’ve been having error problems with Windows7 and since my pc was a used refurbished one I had bought, I didn’t want to do the upgrade. I’m sure glad I didn’t because a few days before the upgrade, my pc died.
