I suddenly noticed that my computer was running slowly. My husband took a look at it and identified some problems on the hard drive and ordered a new one. I went in to a bit of a panic as I have no back up for my machine and although most of my work is sent off to customers and so would be attached to emails, I can't afford to lose the content of my books, photos of my children and many other things. Thankfully, the hard drive was fitted in time for me not to lose anything.
The other fantastic thing is the massive increase in speed. I really didn't think that I needed to speed up pc but the difference has been amazing. Now when I am researching things or even opening and closing files things are working so much faster. It means that I can my work done so much more quickly,which makes such a difference, especially now in the school holidays, when I have less uninterrupted time than normal.
