My old pc crashed, thank fucking God for my new Sony Vaio!

That's right peeps, my old Acer pc crashed last Friday night when I was trying to copy files to a disc so I could transport the data to my brand new blue Sony Vaio.

Thankfully, I'd managed to get all of my blog stuff burned and transferred except for my gorgeously gorgeous husband, Michael Weatherly's files.

WHHHHYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!

AAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

At least I got Carmine and Dominic and all of my blog pics.

They're still on the discs and I'm keeping them as backup until I can get a flash drive and make recovery discs.

Speaking of, what type of discs do I need for the recovery. I've read DVD+R, DVD-R, even read cd, either way, I guess that means have to go buy them.

As for flash drives, how many gbs are neccessary, I'm think 4 or 8, and I've seen blue ones that match my new pc. And how easy are they to use and is it neccessary to update the data on it everytime you're on your pc? Since I'm constantly adding, deleting, changing and rearranging, would I have to do it everyday?

Since this crash, I'm now freaking out that I'll lose all of this too. So I'd better get my shit together and sort this thing out.

Unfortunately I'll have to contact a pc fixer, I know what the problem is, something to do with windows root system 32 hll.dll or something. The message keeps telling me my system is missing or corrupted. I was using drive E at the time. I'd copied my files and had thrown in the disc to burn and the fucking thing crashed on me.

And on top of that.....there's a million and one other things on that pc that I hadn't copied. It would have taken wayyyy too many discs to copy the stuff and since I was constantly updating, it didn't seem worth it. Now, I'm not panicking, but I know I'll freak out if the pc doctor can't restore my data.

But now, I'm not adding anything to this pc that won't matter if it crashes. I've got the main stuff on disc and that's okay. Just need to get me some discs to make a recovery pack.

  1. Ummmmmmm....

    With the flash drive I say the bigger the better. But I don't know. I've got about 8 of them ranging from 2 gig to 16 gig and none of them are anywhere near full.

    As for the rest of your questions.. *shrugs* I dunno.

  2. Hey chickie, I totally feel your pain of the crashed computer and lost data. Here's to hoping our new computers never crash!

  3. Scoman, I'm gonna try and get big ones.

    Okay....that sounded strange...

    Cyn, I just have to get the right discs to make the recovery discs and some flash drives and it will never matter again!
