Tips On Surviving An Operating System Crash





Once in a while it happens to every one of us, an Operating System crash of you computer.
Then you have to reformat your hard drive, reinstall the operating system. You cannot
prevent the loss of time you suffer while working to get everything in order again.
There are some very easy things you can do right now to make ensure your peace of mind
for your business. You need to be back up and running as quickly as possible in the event
of an operating system crash.
When you buy your computer, be sure to ask the dealer for a diskette or CD-ROM with the
drivers for every hardware component that is not standard in the operating system.
('Drivers' are those pieces of software that the operating system needs for handling a
hardware component.) Usually such a diskette or CD-ROM has an "autorun" program
stored: You just need to insert it in the diskette/CD-ROM drive – and the driver installs it.

Document everything including usernames, passwords, merchant account numbers,
important websites and especially software unlock codes. Anything that is not written
down on paper is subject to be lost.
Back up your hard drive as necessary for how often you have new updates that you cannot
afford to lose or rebuild.
Important! If you have to completely reinstall your operating system, the "My Documents"
folder is usually lost. Make sure you don't forget this folder when you do the back up.
