As you recall I had some computer issues last week and on Wednesday I was back up and running. Well for about four hours when a Windows Security update again stalled this time at 85%. Arg! Back to see Lena at New West Laptops to discuss what to do. So I decided to get a second hard drive with a much faster speed but keep the old one so I don't lose all my pictures and documents or have to have them transferred onto a new drive. Better yet she managed to get it all done before I could walk down take some pictures and enjoy a coffee! She called as I was about a 1/4 of the way thru my large Americano. I took the rest to go and went to get my baby back!
On my walk the river tide was dropping and these seagulls were having fun having a bath in the shallows.
When I plugged everything in I couldn't figure out how to access my original hard drive. I tried doing it over the phone but promptly forgot a major step. Back to the shop and Lena walked me thru it showing me while dealing with phone calls.
Back home and by the time I plugged it in lost the method. Finally gave up and called and told her where I was and figured it out. That gal is amazing and if you live on or around the New Westminster Quay I would suggest you go there first. The best thing is I probably saved myself over $200 plus the pain and cost of transferring files onto a new CPU.
