    after 9 months, Vista ate shi

    when i get it reinstalled, (no the repair feature didn't work) i'll let you
    know how smart i was to have a separate hard drive just for data -too bad MS
    isn't smart enough to keep all my settings, email, downloads, updates (that
    reminds me - i think i have to download service pack again (i'm on dialup))
    high scores and program files on a separate drive -- because i DON'T WANT TO
    DO THIS EVERY 9 MONTHS

    The repair feature wouldn't work if your HD failed, as the repair 'drive' is
    only a partition on the main one. That's why all of us need to have our data
    on separate drives (I have a 500GB Firewire setup) - and a set of backup
    discs, just in case it wasn't a HD failure that caused the problem. Oh, and
    all our downloads saved to DVDs etc., too. Good luck with your restoration.

    One word, WinRot. Look it up on Google. Any MS-Windows product needs at
    least one enema in it's life cycle.
