My poor little laptops c drive (119gb) filled up on Wednesday, I did not even realise I had an SSD but it was an early one so very small. Went and bought a 480gb Kingston SSD at the local part store in Cairn and asked them to fit and transfer the c drive. I was quite willing to pay the $150 for a professional to do the job but they wanted the machine for 5 working days - bugger off.

Went to the local one man show computer guy who said it could be done overnight.

Next morning he calls to say he is laid up with a bad back and that his attempt failed. I went around to pick up the machine and a couple of cables to do the transfer on my old desktop.

Downloaded Aoemei (OG gets quite eloquent with it's praises), nice UI seems simple enough so I start the transfer - 3 hours later I supposedly have my c drive transferred to the new disk.

Now for the dreaded part, physically swapping the drives, I hate hardware. As simple as 1 screw and a gentle tug on the drive fitting.

No boot drive Ffaaaaaarrrrkkkkk me!

For the next 6 hours I try rescue disk, Lenovo recovery, Windows 10 troubleshooting. Eventually I get windows to acknowledge there might be something it can work with. I then used the recovery drive I had taken the night before to reset the computer.

Except I now have 8 partitions where I used to have 3, download Aoemei partition manager because windows 10 will not allow you to extend a partition unless the vacant partition is adjacent to the one you want to extend and windows WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO MOVE A PARTITION. Every other toll does this in their most basic operation.

I am now back to 3 partitions and all the installed software can see the D: partition with all the data on it Sigh | :sigh: I hate working with OS's.

Next - Adventures with Xamarin Forms OMG | :OMG:
