    Those are the people clickbaits are made for.
    I did read it I was basically joining him in saying the main reason I uninstalled was a technical thing.

    A failed HDD is often a blessing in disguise, although it never feels that way at the time.

    A new o/s install cleans away all the fluff you've installed along the way, and you can take your time loading what is still important.

    Just always backup all important stuff onto a new external HDD every year at least, and make incremental backups along the way. I have a pile of external drives dating back years.

    And to think we used to moan about getting our pictures developed. I've yet to lose a single snap due to a PC failing.

    Buy another identical SSD and RAID1 them before you reinstall

    Make 2 backups of your data on external drives, and store one of them at the sisters place

    I have a backup copy of all my stuff on a NAS, 2 disk mirror.

    Losing data is very annoying.

    As somebody whose MB only has four SATA connectors, I find this array rather preposterous.

    Just waiting for my mate to pop over. He's successfully booted Windows on the new SSD, so fingers crossed when he gets here later.

    I owe the man a drink.

    Urm, if he installed Windows on a different motherboard then you’ll have loads of fun on your actual machine

    For basic everyday Windows installs, always install on the actual hardware you are going to use.

    Yeah - it’s a throwaway scratch share I use for dumping stuff quickly over LAN before it gets properly backed up. I wouldn’t set up a system drive like that

    Both of these are great advice.

    Sorry about your hardware issues, Unicorn, and I hope you’re back up and running soon.

    @OP, you know what? I have a suggestion for you. To celebrate your return, along with your racy new SSD, I think you should buy a new ship. I know you have the credits. Surprise us all by showing up in something other than your old broken down ashtray of a Cobra. Reminds me of the car Peter Falk used to drive in Columbo.

    Un1 bought many ships over the years.

    ...but they were all Cobras
