Default From agony to ecstasy...

My wife's LT, that was running W10, recently had an update which completely bricked it.

(I will never know whether the update, which caused the mayhem to the LT. was a Windows one and no longer care!)

To cut a very long story short: I booted from a MX-16 DVD and recovered almost 14.0GB of files by uploading to the cloud; my external HDD had also failed for some unknown reason.

I then attempted to install MX-16, but got a warning that I needed to run GSmartControl before continuing: it stated that the HDD had passed their test and the install went smoothly.

My wife is perfectly happy as I managed to rescue her precious files and she now has a fantastic OS that actually works.
