September 18 Final Update

I’ve got my computer back with the new backup program. That should give me the backup in case my C drive dies.

I’m really hurting tonight. I’m very tired and my back and neck have a lot of muscular pain. I’ve taken 600 mg of ibuprofen. Hopefully that should take the edge off.

The chemo is really nailing my feet. When I walk, I can barely feel the floor. My fingertips are numbing up too.

I’m just going to bed.

What is the name of the backup program that you use? Does it check and only overwrite newer files? What do you backup to?

It's called Acronis True Image. It creates a bootable CD. After installing it, the computer guy inserted a new drive, restored to it and the machine booted up with all my stuff. I have two hard drives in my desktop machine and I backup from one to the other every night.
