Updating the update

Phew, what a relief. Having let the machine rest for 24 hours, I switched on this morning and it went through the automatic repair program, so all is up and working again. I do back up all my files to a stand-alone hard disc and thought that by plugging that into the laptop I would be able to access them easily. Not so. The automatic back-up only backs up new or altered files each day, so tracking down a file that was last used when? is not easy. I'm changing the system and will make a diary note to do a complete back-up on a weekly basis so I shouldn't have that problem again in the future - provided I stick to the plan.
