    Hello, all.
    @ “Seamus McSeamus”:
    The only problem w/ that strategy is my computer is *NEVER* “set up the way I want it”!

    Have a GREAT day, neighbors!

    There is probably more truth in this pie chart than most people would think.

    BSOD = panic = “OMG, my computer is dying” = relief that said computer restarted normally = “I better back my shit up NOW!”

    I do a backup after I get a new machine set up the way I want it, with all the software I want on board. This is my “clean backup” – a reinstall without actually reinstalling, and with the added benefit of not having to add all the software back in. I do have to update windows and most programs, but it saves time over a true reinstallation.

    After that, it’s weekly incremental backups.
