And running around. SWMBO took me to COSTCO to look for a drive; didnâ€™t find an affordable one. Stopped by Home Depot and looked at closet systems. Stopped by Safeway for Ham and Juiceâ€™s. Got home. Remembered we didnâ€™t get a drive.
Drove back into Port Orchard and first stopped by Staples. Didnâ€™t have a laptop hard drive in stock. On to Wal-Mart’s. They had a 500 GB drive for $54. Cool!
Got home, got comfortable, took 5 minutes to pop the new drive out of the external case, and, damned thing wonâ€™t work. No SATA connections. Just USB 3.0 connection. Damn! Damn Damn! Put it back in the case.
So, made sure that I have pulled everything I can from her old drive and am reinstalling Windows 7 as a clean install. Weâ€™ll see if that works.
Well. It seems to be working. Did a full backup and she is reinstalling all her programs now. Had it do a full system backup just in case. Later Iâ€™ll have to copy all her data, pictures, mail, and whatever back to the correct places on her drive. Time consuming.
Other than that just not much going on. MCARC 10-meter Chat Net in a couple of minutes. Which didnâ€™t go well. Could really hear only KF7VWA and sort of hear W7FBI (but could not tell what he was saying). Ah well.
