I’ve always loved my Dell systems, but I’m in a real bind right now. I’ve been working on a 17,000+ assembly and my hard drive just failed! I should have never bought the 1TB mechanical drive!!! I had everything on the same drive, both the OS and my data files. Fortunately I backed up to our network on Wednesday, but my system is still DOA. We have Pro Support from Dell, so they came out today to replace the hard drive, but now I have to reinstall everything from scratch including SolidWorks. I’m stuck working on my old POS machine until I get the other system up and running again. I hate computers so much! Any recommended shortcuts?
