I received notification this morning that my hard drive damaged computer has been repair and should be here tomorrow afternoon.
I had recently bought a new Western Digital 1TB My Book Essential external hard drive so that I could back up everything on my computer.
I had this external hard drive setup to do a daily automatic backup.
Once I get my repaired computer back, it will be very interesting to see how well and how easy it is to get everything I want from the backup back onto my computer.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that everything will go smoothly. If not, I will have tons of work to do.
