My heart is with you on this one. I just crashed my computer on Friday. DSiL is having to do a total re-install of system/etc. Hoping that I got most of my files on EHD this past week... so may only have a few days of files/downloads missing.... fingers crossed. Yes, this is a PITA but thanks heavens I did backup things.
Don't have any scraping software/kits on this computer [DH's laptop], so won't be scraping until my computer is fixed. .... hopefully over this weekend.
Yikes... didn't know that there will be a new Windows OS out so soon. Good luck on getting your computer back up and running.

My impediment is my files are spread out over 4 or 5 hard drives in the computer and although they should be fine and safe...I only have one external drive case. Can't decide which hard drive to put in the external case (one with scrapbook kits or one with current photos and layouts in progress).
