I've been sarching ebay for an external drive, haven't decided on any of the multiple choices yet. I have some stuff re-downloaded and saved on 32 gig sd cards for now.
I still can't figure out how they get 32 gb of info on one of those little cards and only 7 or 8 or however much on a DVD.
Know what you mean, I had to re-install a program off of 3.5 inch floppys the other day, a whopping 1.44 MB each, wow tech sure has come a long way.
Glad you got your trouble cured, I had a virus issue a week ago, did get it resolved with Malwarebytes but still makes you angry that some unknown lowlife can mess with your stuff. According to my go to computer guy (last 20years or so) the only way to avoid a virus 100% is to stay off the internet, I could do that I would miss my tractor friends. He recommended Microsoft Essentials over any of the other commercial anti virus and it is free from MS.
