Kudos to Paragon Software: and A BIG THANK YOU Main Hard Drive has catastrophic failure --- the nuclear option. Hard Drive too hot to handle, no noise, no spinning, no noise... it was DOA. 1. Buy New Drive 2. Restore C Drive from latest cyclic backup which runs every M, W and Sat. 3. Fix boot problem...(ntldr missing) 4. Back up and running.... Files lost: ZERO Elasped Time: 3.5 hours Elapsed Time if I had known what to do about the boot problem right off the bat: 2.25 hours. =========================================================- 1TB hard Drive = $85 Paragon Software = $50 Restored machine after catastrophic HD failure: PRICELESS ========================================================= Get the impression I am happy You're right !
