Your computer systems will age and begin to show it. Sometimes, due to error, malfunction, malware, or viruses, the useful life of your system is dramatically shortened.
If anything can possibly go wrong it will! You need to prepared for this sad day when the old system must give way to new.
One example that you may not be thinking of is that disk drives age much like an automobile or a light bulb, they will eventually become useless. As they age, the likelihood of a serious malfunction becomes increasingly probable.
Will you be ready to minimize your loss before your old system crashes for the last time?
With your help, feedback, suggestions, and criticism, I intend to write a procedure to help you avoid a clean install, and to get through one should it become necessary.
Thanks in advance for your input in this discussion group.
Just to get things going here is a tip that help delay the inevitable clean install: Use COMODO's Time Machine as a safety net.
