One of the things I did on Monday while my broadband connection was down, was some much need maintenance on my computer. Things have been slowing down and other things just have not been happening.
Thankfully I have a drive image copy of the basic install of this machine, including all the regular programs that I use like Dreamweaver and Photo shop, but it’s still a pain resetting the machine back a year or two.
I didn’t have to do much backing up as most of the files that I have created are on a separate drive anyway so all I needed to do was copy my email folders across and move everything out of “my documents”.
Just over one hour and a couple of product reactivations later the computer is up and running again.
