The hard drive in my 6 month old Windows7 desk top computer started doing odd things late last week, clicking, and responding very slowly. I blogged etc on an old lap top over the weekend, somewhat painfully, because my accustomed applications weren't available. I managed to back up all the data and took the computer back to the shop I bought it from on Saturday afternoon, and they replaced the hard drive under warranty (1 TB Seagate). I got it back basically stripped, just the operating systems. I've spent the last hour and a half getting it 75% up (Firefox, Anti-virus, E-mail) but the good news is it mostly over. I'll have a few installs left over the next couple days, but I should be back in business. Now, if I could just think of something interesting to blog about... Or maybe I have a pretty picture among all those back ups.
Update: Thanks to Ted:
