The computer I use at work is making me angry. Parts of it are crashing regularly now. It's a good computer, the best one I've ever used, but I think it needs to have Windows reinstalled. It's been used pretty hard and by a lot of people. I'm trying to think of everything I need to back up, but I know I'll forget some things and they'll be lost forever. I might take this crisitunity to install Linux and make this a dual-boot machine. What are all the things I need to remember to back-up before wiping my hard drive (besides work files, iTunes music, bookmarks, email, financial files, settings for w.bloggar and FTP)?

On a happier note, I saw Caddyshack for the first time last night.



How big is the hard drive. You should consider making ghost CDs of the entire drive. Norton Ghost sells for about $40 I think, and it might be worth it.

It’s a 20 GB hard drive, with 16 GB used right now. Ghost looks like a cool program, but if just restored an image that I take right now, then wouldn’t I have all of the same problems? I’m hoping that reinstalling Windows and all of my apps would fix some of my problems.
