I’m back! It’s been a couple of weeks because my computer died, but I’m back.
It upgraded to Windows 11 and was working fine, then it did an update and completely died. I mean Blue Screen of Death died. There was nothing I could do. I tried uninstalling the updates but it wouldn’t allow me. I tried system restore, didn’t work. I was doomed. I removed the hard drive and managed to extract all the data from there (which took four days – damn data), and then reinstalled Windows 10 which I fortunately had a copy of on a memory stick, and it now seems to be working as it should. Oh yeah, I had to put all my data back on which took another four days. But now I’m back!
The collateral damage was all the data on my C drive. Poof. All gone up in smoke. This is a proper pain in the bottom because I usually put all the stuff I’m working on on this drive, and then move it to my D drive when it’s complete. So everything recent has just disappeared. I thought it would be saved on my One Drive but either I don’t understand it completely, or it’s just rubbish. After the last couple of weeks, either of these could be true.
Anyway, I’ve put measures in place to prevent this data loss going forward, and I’m very reluctant to upgrade to Windows 11. So, fingers crossed, this won’t impact me as much if it happens again.
That’s about all for now – short and sweet this week because I’ve got a lot of work to catch up with.
See you next week.
Peace out X

“ I am a self-employed plasterer who wanted to advertise my business on Google. I contacted MaadWeb to find out my options. I found Adam very helpful over the phone, we arranged a meeting at my property and from there I was given the advice I needed. I made my decision on what I wanted and he put everything together for me. I am now advertising my services on Google. I found Adam to be very professional at his job and I am very pleased with the outcome. He told me to not hesitate to contact him if I needed to make any changes on the listing on Google or a website build. Thank you so much! ”
