    That's the good news. The bad news is that my laptop ;crashed and had to be rebuilt to the tune of $130. More bad news is that I lost all of my documents, pictures, music, etc.

    You should back up anything you don't want to lose. I use Google Drive. It's free.

    I learned a valuable lesson. I'm in the process of backing up important stuff on one drive.

    Or you can go to Best Buy or any other big box store and buy yourself a drive, probably get 1T for less than $100

    I can't imagine you would have that much to back up so could probably get away with a 2GB or something like that for $30

    If I still had my first computer with a 100 MB hard drive I would give it to him. It wasn't broadband capable so he would have to use a dialup.

    I took your advice & did that. Remember, you're talking to someone who relies on his grand daughter for computer support.
