Harsh ? If you say so. I read what I posted above and detected nothing harsh in my post.
But, speaking of backing up, I have learned to back up frequently. I store hardly anything on my laptop hard drive, but a lot of stuff in the cloud (Dropbox, Bob, Skydrive, etc) and on external devices. My new SSD drive is only 120 gigs anyway, but wow is it fast ! 🙂
