Fomat C:/

Today I reformatted my computer.  This is something that I do about once a year.  Things start to run slow, my computer get’s bogged down, windows starts crapping out…so I reformat and things get better.

Before I ever reformat my computer I check and make sure that everything is moved to my D: drive (I keep everything their normally anway and use my C: just for installing programs.  I double chck to make sure I have all the CD’s for my software that I need to re-install or have the software install files saved on my D: drive.  I check to be sure I have all my weird drivers that windoes doesn’t know on it’s own. 

Everything went great.  I’m back and up and running before mindnight and I did it all while my kids were awake!  Cool!

Then I realized the one thing I forgot to do. 


All my internet book marks are gone.

Luckliy I have some of the pages I visit listed on this blog.  So, next time you go to re-format, don’t forget to save your bookmarks!

How often to you reformat your computer?  Do you reformat your computer?  What’s the worst thing you forgot to save last time you reformated?

    You and your brother really confuse me sometimes. So to answer your questions- How often…?Please speak English. Do you…? Why should I and can’t your brother just come up and do it. What’s worst….? Since I still am not sure what your talking about I guess I have lost nothing. Which is better than you:)

    I haven’t reformatted in a long, long time. Maybe I should. But when will I have time?

    ummm…never! But I probably should! But that would require that I know where all my installation disks are…

    I am sorry you lost your links!

    Here is one you need. 😀

    Get one of those natty back-up drives and some synchronisation software, it backs up ALL the personal data on a PC. (My is WD Sync or soemsuch thing.)

    As an ex-computer pro of some 30+ years I have never had the courage to reformat the hard drive though…. Good luck!
