About the same time, however, my main computer crashed. The new Windows 10 would not boot up, nor repair itself, so it is currently “what’s on the bench”.
I always use separate hard drives to store important data, so I decided to just purchase a new C: drive and a new copy of Windows 10. Even though it’s a pain in the rear to re-install software, I feel a “clean” copy of the operating system will maintain a more stable machine. Unfortunately, I kept getting error messages after Windows was installed. I wrestled with this all weekend until I finally discovered that the new hard drive was defective. After purchasing a second HD, all is well. I will be able to free up my bench once again and continue with Jean’s dulcimer.
