    Exclamation A lesson learned...

    M just getting back to my gun forums the laptop crashed real bad... blue screen and the "Unrecoverable windows error" message in VISTA.

    What happened.... I was doing a manual defrag with the machine plugged in to the network N windows did a update and reboot, and that trashed the HD real bad.

    Fortunately I had a full backup (3 DVD's) from a previous month but lost every thing in the interim. The good news is I found a free on-line program that can recover files, including the ones off the digital camera, so my Knob Creek photos were salvaged, all 197 of them.

    I still don't have my main laptop back and m using my older one but the lesson here is back up your files any time you make a change!!! with the new 8 gig thumbnails, and 160 USB portable drives there is no excuse!!!

    I just had to rebuild my Vista box this week, It kept locking up but I was able to backup everything before the Vista reload.

    Hmm...I think you missed the real lesson. You got a tip in lesson's clothing.

    The real lesson is to not keep anything you're not worried about losing on a winblows box.
