    That was a long learning experience, even with the steps laid out for me. Everything was difficult, from finding the snipping tool – not to mention understanding it – clicking the 3rd last icon,...

    Problem installing VirtualBox

    I used to think that testing an image to ensure it would work when needed was just a matter of letting Macrium verify it after completion, booting the PC with the rescue disk and opening a few of the...

    It gets stranger and stranger.

    Three nights running I’ve tried to upload the same photos to One Drive, my ISP’s usage shows 200+ MB each time, but they never arrive. Last night I also tried a few...

  20. What is a MBR partition? Why does it use half the HD? How to retrieve data from it?

    Back in February, tired of sorting out problems with the wife’s PC, I decided to do a clean install of Win 8. She uses it mainly for email, browsing the web and VOIP. As she has hundreds of emails...
