In my Tip # 6 I suggested:
“Also put all your files, downloads, everything on a USB.
Your computer may go down someday
and you’ll lose everything when it is recovered.
I learned this the hard way.”
Well, I had only saved 6 Giga on my USB and last Saturday my laptop just died on me. So I took it to the computer guy in my neighborhood again.
This time it cost 7,000 Yen (USD $70) to get my computer back. The computer guy said I have too much stuff on my harddrive and probably a virus was attached to one of all the downloads I have made.
So it looks like I have to figure out how to save my 50 giga someplace else. A USB can’t hold all of that. Maybe buy ten USB?
Does anybody out there have a good suggestion? The oldie newbie needs some
