 My brain is mush. Restoring the hard drive and software is still underway. However, system images are the best backups - one stop backup of files and software.  I am using Macrium Reflect - the free version. Grab it folks and start making a weekly backup to an external hard drive and your fear of hard drive death will diminish.

My new hard drive is fucking with me however. After install, it failed the Short Drive test. Then passed. Then failed. Then passed.  The computer's extended service warranty expires in a few days, but the hard drive is warranted for another 30 days. So I will keep using Macrium Reflect to make system images.

The tech was helpful, also blew out 3 years worth of computer dust with my compressed air. To my horror, he gets rated on the entire service experience  - from the moment I made the call to the support center to him installing  the hard drive.  And if he gets anything less than a 9 out of 10, his supervisors will call me to find out why.  Since he did a good job I gave him 10, but the initial phone calls t the support center were not as good. 

Did I say my mind is mush.....

Dr Who started up again on BBC and I like the new companion.
