I won a Contest! WOW

Do you remember that great contest I blogged about , that was being held over on Mira's blog, Random Thoughts?
Well, I was one of the lucky winners!!

WinnerThe contest was called "A JOINT BLOG ANNIVERSARY GIVE-AWAY CONTEST", and was hosted by some of the best bloggers out there!! The prizes were amazing, and there were 12 winners!! You can view the winners Here.

Winners were selected by random.org, and I was #9 on the list!! Woooo Hoooo! I am so excited.....
Here is what I won........

9th PRIZE
1000 EC + 1 month 125x125 ad space from Lovely Pink
1000 - EC credits c/o Small Side Bits

This is like the best news ever.....seeing as though my computer is dying, and I need to replace the whole operating system!! I am going to lose everything, so I am spending the weekend trying to back-up and salvage what I can!!

I have my poor computer back for the weekend, and will try to capture everything, although I know I won't be able to. I have so many things on here, and programs that I no longer have the discs for, or don't remember where they are....
And then once they re-install the operating system Windows XP (I don't want Vista) next week, I have to install everything all over again, and hope to get it back to somewhere near where it was!!

Anyone have any great ideas for backing up, and saving that is easy and not so time consuming as dragging and dropping every damn single file??? Any info would be helpful at this point....
But I only have the weekend to do it. Ideas.....? Suggestions....?

Thanks so much,
Till next time,

Seems Symantec or Norton 360 has a wonderful online back up system. You might check them out. Haven't had to use mine much but it might help you.
All my best! Laurie

Congratulations! I would suggest you get an external drive. Use it as your default storage. Everything will be directly saved on that drive.

Congratulations, Kat!!! I agree with Joel. I lost all my files when my laptop crashed and felt so helpless without any backup file. Now I always bring my flash drive which has become my default storage.

Belated Happy Valentine's Day, Kat!

Much Love,
