Today, I decided I'd had enough with my portable cloud drive, and decided to replace it. I suspect that much of the problem has that as its root. But getting all of that data off of there, with a computer that I suspect is hobbled by that device. . .oy.
So, I won't go into any more detail unless I solve my problems and can help others with the information. Instead, I'm going to try to get a few things up on the blog while I attempt CPR on my business computer! Wish me luck!
