Finally, I've got the new computer up and running. After several hours of failed attempts, my 18.7gb of backup files have been restored by McAfee. I may still have to do a lot of re-configuring, and I still have some software to reload. I started with McAfee Backup at 10:45am yesterday and finished at 10:15pm. I will be looking for another backup solution in the very near future. Regardless, I am once again a very happy camper. By the way, the offer of a used laptop by youngdocglock never materialized.
