What about moderation in all things, including FB, Li, and other boards? And, who said one had to constantly read and write large amounts of personal things. Mine for example carries very little personal information, of myself or of others. My group, likewise, carries very little personal information, of myself or of others. Again, I ask: what about moderation in all things?
Daniel, I just now got back into FH, been away several days! Just how dead is that HD? Tell me more, thanks! I'm just beginning to seriously dabble in data recovery. If the HD still has some decent spinning to it, download and install MiniTool Power Data Recovery, the free version will recover up to 1GB of recoverable folders/files. Pro is unlimited.
Anna, I just now saw this thread, even though passively-logged in, I've been away awhile. I'm glad your DH solved the problem 'cause it's been a long time ago I worked with IDE HDs, and I wouldn't how to make an IDE HD work with Windows 10. Tell your DH great work!
Taskbar Notification Tray - "RollerStoller NORAD" operations [Control Panel --> Notifications --> Show Icons and Notifications] Almost any program or utility that can place an icon into this tray, I welcome and allow same to do so. I want any/all such icons to be visible at all times, from boot to shutdown. Reasons: I want my "RollerStoller NORAD" to inform me, directly or indirectly, of anything becoming amiss or already amiss. When any particular icon or icons "go missing" a few times, I begin to check out the Windows innards and attempt to find out the cause, and apply appropriate solution. Also newly-installed, welcomed, things appear -- letting me know such are ready for action. Having between 21-27 icons in that try can sometimes lead to icon-lathergy on my part, however, I try to eye-ball the group daily, and hopefully become alert to any missing-in-action icon -- 'cause sometimes that means a particular program or utility is not working completely. This "NORAD" has come in handy numerous times, alerting me of this, that, the other.
Have been paying closer attention to my external USB HDs, I am much more aware that rather than ATI [Acronis] or Macrium failure -- it has been several times an explorer.exe not communing with respective external HD failure. It might be within any one particular external HD, it might be conflicting drive-letter assignments, it might be "explorer.exe and company" needs to be dropkicked or punted into better performance. In order to maximize the idea of restorable backups, minimize the idea of failures in backup and/or restores, I've been doing the following... Long ago, because drive letters differ when booting external media for backups & restores, I labeled all my OS partitions S0x[ddd]C, data partitions S0x[ddd]D, x being computer number [1 2 or 3], ddd being three unique digits/letters from HD ID/serial number. Each external backup/restore HD's labeled: Hitachis Kitty & Katty[*], the four Seagate HDs labeled SeaEPD, SeaBPD, SeaKIT, SeaKAT. WDE1, WDE2. At all times, I know exactly which partition is being backed up to what ext HD, what ext HD is going to restore to what partition C or D, regardless of what the drive letters are. [* - My two cats are more famous than me, on Facebook & Twitter.] Before beginning backup routine, I plan to test explorer & ext HD operations by a quick-copy into & out of attached ext HD, if bi-direction copy fails, the backup or restore will fail, it's time to fix the explorer-ext HD relationship. If bi-direction copy succeeds, backup begins. I no longer assign drive letters to any ext HD, causes problems down the road. And, 2nd internal HD's C-partition & D-partition will no longer be drive-letter assigned. YYYYMMDD[ext HD name]_[partition letter]_S0x -- that's the XML file and the high-compressed backup file name I use within Macrium Reflect Pro. Acronis keep its log files differently, I can name the backup file only. Hours, days, weeks, later -- I know where each backup is. If a particular backup is really critical, I can do both a Macrium and an Acronis backup of C-[OS]-partition on each external HD. "Take care of thy backups and thy restores will take care of thee."

Ok, will add a few things that I think fellow Christians can benefit from :) While certainly spiritual in nature, the topics do pertain to keeping our documents, letters, pictures, etc., as well as smoother operations.
Hi! Is there a computer technologies forum within Fresh-Hope? Reason for asking: we Christians, like everyone else, want to protect our created docs, text files, pics, etc etc etc by backup/restore strategies, data recovery strategies. And, of course, setup, configuration and running security and monitoring software, office suites, etc. I have a couple of topics I'd like to post as New Threads and get interaction upon! If no CT forum, can we use this forum, Christian Chat, to start a few computer geek-threads?
