    Sled SSD's

    Here's my latest. I was able to delete C from System Reserve and shrink volume merge D with free space but not change letter.

    Sled SSD's

    The above is my disk management. Not sure about partition arrangement. I do remember purchasing a SATA to USB cable and running recovery from an external drive to load the SSD in the laptop. SanDiskPlus240GB is the SSD brand.

    Sled SSD's

    Remember when your dads' family bus sedan was disparagingly referred to as a sled? I think the same about SSD's. What are supposed to be whiz bang solutions for speed are not. I installed them in two laptops and they give new meaning to the word buffering. Whiz bangs? Can't prove it by me.

    SOLVED Does Windows 10 really need a user password?

    Thoughts? How about I despise passwords- my computer is mine and only I have access. I don't log in to my toaster. Try running a search for NETPLWIZ on any engine. That tells how to bypass passwords.

    How to Re partition SSD drive

    Caution: before you delete all partitions look at function in disk management. If listed as boot or MBR deleting will put you in a no boot condition.

    Cannot back my computer since I upgraded to Windows 10 from 7

    If you're trying a system image to an external drive try naming the backup WindowsImageBackup (note caps and no spaces). I went thru a bunch of "couldn't find" messages till I stumbled upon this naming gambit.

    SOLVED Booting from a usb hard drive cloned from windows 10 OS

    My experience trying to boot from any USB device was that it didn't work. I was able to boot from an F!2 startup via a previously prepared rescue disk then run recovery from an external drive connected to USB. Try that.

    SOLVED Windows 10 - Does not keep correct time

    then you have a bad capacitor in your power supply which is causing the problem. I've seen this before and experienced it firsthand. My cmos battery would die shortly after replacement which was a herculean effort as it was buried under the keyboard. I finally had to endure startup error...

    God mode

    My experience with that has been that an icon looking like control panel will show up but for whatever reason the name God Mode will not be accepted. Otherwise it really is God Mode.
