It's... ALIVE!

Recently my original hard drive (the one that came with the computer) decided to kick the bucket... while I was at a LAN party... well a little before then, but until the lan party nothing seriously bad happened, anyway, today (yesterday) I got two shiny new hard drives, 1 is 500gb and the other, 1 terabyte, lets hope these new gems last longer then their predecessors because if they don't I'm not going to be a happy chappy...

But anyway, back to the point, normally when you buy a new hard drive you have to go through the annoying stages of getting your shit back to the way you like it, and without an imaging/ghosting program you're going to bet your bottom dollar that even then, it's not going to be the way that you wanted it (things on the desktop in a different order to what you put them in when you backed up your drive, drives partitioned correctly... etc, etc.)

Well, if you have a program called Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 then all your issues are pretty much solved (all except for validation of windows if you've cracked it) and you have the option of either doing it after you've installed windows or before you've even formatted the drive/s...

here's a link to their site 


  1. Nice plug. This totally didn't sound like advertising at all. =P

  2. not advertising, but for the amount of effort I put into this they should be paying me instead of the other way around haha
