Good to see you back.   

As you have been busy, just checking if you managed too,

1.   Create a restore point?

2.   Sort out the Data from the backup folders you placed on the  C drive, and put the contents where you want them?

4.   Created another  restore point?

5.   Delete the folders you no longer need?

6.   Do a clean up?

Thank you

 

I didn't realise i was to create a restore point before sorting the files - i'm about 1/2 way through the files as i've not had much free time but i have just created a restore point.

 

I'll continue on with sorting the files & create another restore point on completion, then i'll perform a cleanup

OK, not a problem, you have a restore point.

1.   Yes, sort the files and place them where you want them stored.

2.   Create a Restore Point then

3.   Delete the folders you no longer need.  (also look in C > Public Folders.   Delete any Data you imported from the old drives)

5.   Do the windows clean up. 

 

I know it's a bit long winded and a pain, but you need to free up as much space on the C drive as possible.

Hello again, Happy Christmas & a happy new year to you!

 

Absolutely no rush but eventually i have things where i need them apare from the pics - they will take a while but i'm happy to figure that out at a later date if you're happy to help me proceed?

 

No rush on this whatsoever, please enjoy your holiday/ time off.

 

Ps - i have noticed that if i leave my PC on for aperiod of time when i come back to it the screen has turned black & the icons havw moved, i then need to restart the machine, other times the screen looks to be ok but when i go bottom left & hover over the windows button the large box does not come up & i have to use ctrl-alt > delete to powet the machine off

In the window that opens > type sfc  /scannow > press enter

OK, that eliminates corrupt system files.

For the moment keep using the computer and if it happens again, try to pin point the time it happens, and/or post any error messages.
