My experience with flash drives has been that they are not very reliable, mostly because they don't use the best flash memory available in order to cut the price.

I overcame my spiritual obesity, now for the physical!

I find that using an USB Flash Drives. You just copy your files folders over from you computer and then copy them back when you have to restore files.

I need to learn to backup everything. The CD,DVD box comes out for me to backup everything, but I do not know what to use and how to do it. Hopefully, there will be someone to help me.

You would have died laughing just now. I looked at the top of this page where it says SparkPeople: and it said, Computer Burned Out. I PANICKED! I thought it was telling me it had really burned out, until I figured it out. It was just the title of the post.

Oh, how I can sympathize! When I fried my hard drive a while back it was horrid. I was lucky that I had lots of "my stuff" other places & I'm told the rest "might" be able to be accessed, but ????
Managed to repair this one with a new motherboard but she's slow & I can't wait to replace it someday. In the meantime, I back up everything with at least a thumb drive.
I learned a hard lesson but one I won't ever forget.
I'm sorry you had so much trouble, I did miss you. And I'm glad to have you back with us.

I keep all my personal files on an external hard drive. I just bought a used 160 Gb laptop hard drive at eBay and the appropriate box (the box costs $7.99 and includes the drivers and cables). So when my computer fries or is otherwise compromised, my data is still there - this also allows me to take the external drive to a friend's house and share data with them.

Sorry yours fried, and glad you're back.

It is amazing how dependent we are on this computers. Glad to see you weren't without one to long. I am sure after awhile you will find the new just as familiar as your old computer.

I am illiterate in all things technological.

Last week my 7 y/o desktop burnt out. I lost everything. I felt lost and even experienced withdrawals.

I felt that aside from losing all my addresses, that another great loss was not having Spark-People. I've told my husband time and again that if I had a choice of only one site on a computer, it would be Spark-People. I am lost without it. It really is my life-line.

We have just had a new computer. I'm still quite confused since it is different, but I do have Spark-people! Hooray! emoticon I am back on that old horse, eating-wise.

Have a great day.
