Hope you get it sorted.Keith I Myers – 2016-03-11 13:43:01-0500+kennedy m. – It can be fixed and I keep good backups. The problem is if it is better to fix it or to just reformat it. I last re-installed my OS in February of 2015 so this is a record for me as I normally reformat every few months to keep everything running at its best. kennedy m. – 2016-03-11 13:52:13-0500+Keith I Myers hmm.
