Crash! — 4 Comments

  1. Ow! Man, I’ve had that happen to me several times. It’s gotten to the point that I just shrug and start the re-installation process again, but then, I’ve long since taken to storing my important data on removable hard drives and Dropbox and the like. I have a lot of redundancy built in, now.

    Now, when I’m just real bored and got nothing better to do for a week, I might just wipe my computer and do a full system re-install just for fun, but that usually means I’ve lost my mind again, because it’s never fun after the third failed attempt to get the system back up and running, and I have to ask myself what the HELL I was thinking, to think this would be a FUN thing to do, by CHOICE. And then I forget all that again in the happy feeling of a fresh, pristine, customized install that only has what I want it to have.

    But that’s just me.

    In any case, I know the pain of a complete system crash and having to rebuild everything. It can take forever! Best of luck to you!

  2. Well your story made me laugh. I am also wrapped in redundant data backups these days, so the reinstall is mostly a waste of time and an irritation. Thanks for the good wishes!
