    blocking email from 'info', the new and ongoing annoyance.

    Well now, spam email is coming through with the tag 'info', but every time the address is slightly different, M$ suggested fix is to add it to the 'blocked sender's' list. The problem is one would have to do that with each info spammola, an endless cycle of madness. Is there any way to just...

    Macrium Reflect

    Old geeks never die. Neither does my Vertex 4 from 2012. Cloning a 1 TB 5400 RPM spinner with Win 10 Home to a 256GB SSD via USB took a bit of research and time. Now, instead of 2 to 3 minutes startup time, about 10 seconds to desktop. It is hard to believe they still make laptop units that...
