I’ve had a rough go of trying to get my backup computer/desktop back to working order. I’m just about to give up all hope of this ever working again. It saddens me to have to give up on it because this computer has helped me ever so much lately. It also has a lot of files on there that I will be unable to get back otherwise.
I took the tower unit into the computer solution center up the street and, as I feared, the only way they most likely can correct the problem is to have the computer formatted and all my programs will be gone and I’ll have to reinstall everything again.
That’s not such a bad thing except for the fact that I cannot find one set of programs I need to reinstall. A long while ago, while I was a student at the local community college, I had Mom buy some Adobe software that was in a bundle pack and it cost over $1000 even with my student discount at the time. I’m looking on eBay for some replacement discs, but it may end up being very costly to replace it. I have to find these discs in one way or another so I can continue to update photos, etc. I hope it works; I hope I can either find my personal discs or I can purchase some that are cheap.
I’m just about to also give up on trying to copy over all the files onto my laptop for safe keeping until we can figure out what else to do for the computer. I’m sure lots of these files were not necessary to keep, but without the computer running I cannot be certain of that.
Well, not much else to report yet. Maybe I’ll have the computer back tomorrow. We’ll see. I’ll try to keep you all informed, but I make no promises.
Hopefully you can all pray to St. Anthony that I find my missing discs; hey, it’s worked before for other objects I’ve lost and asked you to pray for me to find.
Love and prayers!
