I Knew It Was Coming
On Thursday 20th February 2014 my PC crashed and I could not recover it this time without major surgery.
I knew it was coming. My PC had slowed down markedly all of a sudden and I could hear the disc chattering more than usual. Sounded like bad sectors to me (areas on the disc probably worn out). And which bits of the disc get used the most? Yep, the important bits where the operating system lives.
I thought, I’m going to have fix that pretty soon, I’ll back up again at the weekend and sort it out then. I procrastinated a bit because although I have everything to do a total rebuild it takes a few days.
