Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Hard Drive Down and Out.

Just crapped out on one of my desktops at the home office, thank God not the one I use all the time. Fairly new machine Dell Inspirion, 8 Gig RAM, 1 Ter HD, Intel I5 MPU. Can't find Windows serial number from it so I had to get a new copy and order a new drive. Same unit still sells for over $600 so spending $140 makes sense. Now I'll have to reinstall everything back up.

not on that one.

I run two backups in different drives. All the contracts, bank records, rent rolls and pictures are in two separate drives, one is a network drive, the other in a separate drive just on my computer.

I have a dental appt. today, so I guess when I get back the parts should be here and I'll get busy.

Nah, it was my second desktop, not mine, nothing really important there. I tried freezing it but still could not read it. I back mine up and keep important documents in three separate places, a USB hard drive, a network hard drive and a flash drive.

Thanks for the reminder. I had pulled my flash drive I run my backup to and forgot to put it back in to my work computer.

I usually pull it and take it home with me on weekends. If anything bad happens, I'll at least have my computer files...

By law I have to keep all paperwork for like seven years from the date of closing and I'm subject to periodic audits on that respect so I make sure I have plenty of backups, I can even access my network drive from anywhere in the world and pull up a specific contract if I need to, even on my phone. so I keep three copies of everything.
