    OS Setup Guide 2005 @ Short Media

    We're not all pros at operating system installation, so Short Media have put together a nice guide on system and OS setup. Handy if you encounter nasty viruses or maybe even device failure.
    Even the veteran PC user falls victim to viruses, spyware and other unwanted software. Our own Short-Media Forums have helped thousands rid themselves and their systems of these plagues but sometimes a PC user has to start from scratch. Many users lose all their data because they didn't back it up and the only solution was to reformat the drive thus erasing all of their data. Gone are the MP3s. Gone are the emails, documents, pictures and countless other valuable files.

    The C: drive loyalist is the most heavily hit. The C: drive loyalist doesn't partition the hard drive. They install the operating system and programs on C: drive. They store all their music, emails, pictures and every other file on C: drive. So if the PC develops a fatal problem due to something other than mechanical hard drive failure then the "big bucket of C:" get's emptied into digital oblivion.
