Don`t bother with W8, it`s garbage, and you`ll be switching back.

It`s like using 7 with a different look, a terrible look. JMO
So now after you got the Gold Member badge you feel you are the supreme authority capable of telling The Absolute Truth?

One of the most arrogant, uninformative, full of BS statements I have ever seen on the SF!

I feel sorry I congratulated you for the Gold Badge. This post alone put you in my ignore list.

Bye. Kari
Uh, he did qualify his response by saying it was just his opinion (JMO).

Your link was flagged by WOT as being unsafe. Mayhap you could spell it out for us cowards who don't to go to a dodgy site.

The link is OK. But it is an Android 2.2. mini laptop. I wonder what the OP is up to. That is a real antique in Android terms. The current release is 4.2 Jelly Bean - and 5.0 Key Lime Pie is lurking around the corner.

WOT gives it a very poor rating in three of four categories (the fourth is merely poor). Being the old coward I am, I prefer not to continue on to such links.

I was wondering the same about the OP.

What is it you are wondering about the OP? Sure it looks like a cheapy PC thing I personally wouldn't touch but it is Norton secured site
Thanks for the info on the WOT plugin. I installed it for Firefox and it does warn about the site. Without this I'd have no idea it was a suspect site........So who do you believe?

Given that the Op has joined very recently and 2 out of the total 3 posts are links to the same site , I'd say its ads.

Hi there
Simple answer : YES

Doesn't matter what you are doing -- ALWAYS HAVE BACKUP - BOTH OS AND DATA - and have more than one on a SEPARATE DEVICE.

I read of one unfortunate member on this Forum who made several backups of his data on to a 3TB external drive - and after he'd accidentally deleted a lot of his music library he wanted to restore it again -- Guess what - when he plugged in his 3TB drive the power blew up and he was stuck !! -- Back to re-ripping several 000's of CD's again !!!!.

In this case the data was salvageable since these external HDD drives are usually standard SATA HDD's fitted with a power supply and a USB==>SATA adapter. Breaking open the case the disk could be restored by simply removing the HDD and fitting to the MOBO as an internal drive (you can get new enclosures to keep the disk as external if required too).

He was lucky in this case -- but if the disk had become totally defective -- what then -- so always keep important data backed up to MORE THAN 1 DEVICE.

Cheers
jimbo
