    Default Les is my hero


    Yesterday I installed the latest version of Proton

    Today I installed Acronis True Image 2019 because I needed to have a look at some old Acronis backup.

    Nothing useful so I uninstalled the trial of True image and got big errors then my computer would not reboot. The hard drive was corrupted. Booting from an Active Boot Disk USB the file explorer showed my 120GB SSD as TWO 110GB and TWO 10GB, figure that one out!

    Anyway to cut a long story short and after trying a few different things I rebooted from the W7 installation CD and was able to use system recovery to get back to the system restore file created when I installed Proton.

    Thanks Les!

    Installing Proton created a restore point which I was able to use to recover my computer to as it was the previous day. Not all installations, including Acronis, do this so you saved me a lot of reinstalling and recovery.

    Thanks again.
