Plus D-PC again with 2 drives in Raid 1 and a 3rd PC called T-PC with 2 HDD in Raid 1. Plus a NAS with Raid 1

If you have the time and you know of a good back-up and “restore” protocol, plus how would it physical happen – would I need more drives??
Hi Dan
Delighted to see that your problem is now resolved, I thought Kari with his multi language skills would be the one to help you>
So far as back up is concerned it would be much better to start a new Topic for this perhaps a title of "Is creating a system backup worthwhile and if so what's the best way?"
Just post that you have been advised to this but not sure where to start.

Thanks to Kari for explaining the solution very detail
i also had the exact same problem as the thread owner
and now finally i can auto-check the spelling in my language (indonesian) even though there still a setting i want to change but i can't:
1. i had to delete english language input in my windows in order word office can detect indonesian to check the spelling
2. apparently word office can go only up to spell checking. unlike english which can also do auto-correct while typing.

anyway, thankyou again for the explanation
