For the second time in ten months, my PC’s hard drive has failed with the loss of most data. Thankfully, since the first failure I began saving a number of important documents online but the loss of online time and of whatever data was left on the system does nonetheless create significant inconvenience. Both PCs were branded; the first one was an IBM desk top mahcine. The second an HP laptop. Both were purchased new. Both ran antivirus and firewall programs.
I am now switching to Apple products; something I never thougth I’d do, let alone have to do.
