Even I have limits on how much self deprecation I am willing to take, so I wont tell you what really was going on - but let's just say the fix was quicker - logistically - than posting this comment. QU works great and it does seem even faster than it was in W7 (but I did not do before-after timing)
OH come on Mel,
We are old buds.... Write small, about what you did, and I promise I wont tll a soul.
Write it like is was a whisper.
Mel, I have to tell you about a Backup program which we bought after a Free Trial Version gave a us a taste.
It is called EASEUS... and it is.
I bought it about 9 months ago, but my wife was using the Free version.;
I had a disaster a few days ago. A real disaster. Computer would not boot, and told me I messed up the configuration of the C drive (which I did)
I wont tell you how dumb I was, until you tell me what you did with the printer.
I had a backup file of 10 but I needed to get to it.
I put in the Easeus Rescue disk, and all that did was tell me I effed up the C drive.
I rumagted around and found a Disk that said EASEUS RESCUE PAID VERSION...
I restored sector by sector which took close to 2 hours, but I'm here.
The whole PAID version is about 23 bucks...
It is so simple to use, it puts Acronis to shame.
183 is the opening screen
185 and 186 are what you get if you want to customize the backup to include various drive. (I scrolled down so you can see some of the drives I can include.
As you can see from 183, you have some button choices. That was DISK PARTITION BACKUP
I use SYSTEM BACKUP, 3rd button, and that gives me snap 184. One click more on Proceed, and I go find Marilyn for a quickie.
At my age, that's a sandwich and coffee!
My System backup, includes the entire C drive including the partitioned boot partition.
Find it on line, and install the free version. When ready, click Yellow bottom strip where you upgrade. That's where it is 23 bucks.
