    Hard drives are in

    Well, UPS brought the new hard drives today, so I'm sure much of tomorrow will be filled with the joys of reinstalling the world on the DAW and getting it all working again. I've tracked down the reauthorization procedures for everything except GigaStudio 3.

    I'm sure it will all be a seamless and adventure free experience...

    Thumbs up Re: Hard drives are in

    I'm happy for you. However, you sure you want to fool around with it tomorrow?

    Glad that you're close to being up and running I agree with Styxx though...maybe you should wait to re-install everything until Wedsnesday!!

    Well, why not do it last week, and have the problems finished? The probablility that you could do it seems to be about 1/10^10^60.

    Have you looked into Acronis True Image? It makes transferring your data/system settings from one hard drive to another a snap. I used it when upgrading my laptop hard drive and it worked flawlessly, no reauthorization or anything.

    It worked well for me as well!

    That sounds like something worth exploring - thanks. Anything to avoid having to go through all this again!

    Re: Hard drives are in

    Seems to me that when my drive died, I used Norton Ghost to restore the system on the new drive. I know I have done so since then when an update or new product caused problems. Saves system id, fingerprint, etc.

    But I did a lot of cussing first.

    Sounds like your job was moderately easy.

    Well, so far it's been the typical adventure. The new SATA drive was dead on arrival. Fortunately, I'd also ordered a couple of IDE drives, so I just used one of those as the boot drive instead.

    However, pretty much anything that could be screwed up or not work right the first ten times has had its day. So far, all I've got accomplished is the initial installation of XP.

    Have I mentioned how much I love technology lately?
