    Re: Ok PC Guys!

    Like webby said, but search for

    *.mbx

    and

    *.ibx

    Then open that directory and CAREFUL copy those files somewhere safe.
    That's your mail.


    Go Vikings!

    You're correct, what do you suggest I do?

    But, wouldn't
    activating my E drive now give me the option to go directly into E drive when booting, which I don't have now....and I did have before my old primary HD gave out?


    The question is moot anyway, since I wasn't able to activate E drive....everything went right along to the the last direction, right clicking to "active partition" and it wasn't offered to me in the E drive right click menu....it was however offered in the right click menu of the working C drive though.

    However, I do not believe I have a viewer or whatever, that will decipher the code, certainly not Microsoft Word or Notebook....So what would I do next?

    This is absolutely wild ... randomly decides the best place to get some help is on a Vikings fan forum. That is great.
    By the way ... some free advice ... get a MAC!

    It's not really that "wild", but yes, a bit random.....The fact was I decided to use Google to search for an answer to my Hard Drive problem this afternoon...... And the first link that popped up on Google's page....was someone else's computer problem on this forum.

    It was close to my problem but not exactly my computer problem....I noticed the member here seem to have gotten lots of advice and very quickly from you guys....

    In fact I never even went to your home page....the link sent me right to this page, this part of the forum and right to the other member's PC problem that I mentioned.

    So I thought I'd give it a shot too....I even stole the members Subject line: "Ok PC Guys!" and so I signed up....

    NOW GET THIS.....

    I was completely oblivious to the fact THAT this was a Minnesota Viking forum until after I signed up....I was so focused on my Hard Drive problem....And when I bookmarked this page, all it read as a bookmark was "Help".
    I thought that's kind of a strange name for a site page.....Then I started noticing all the purple & gold on the page....then I started LOL and I realized what forum I was in.

    I think I'll stay...I like it....

    IF you read my second post.... I'm from San Francisco born & raised...now living 250 miles north of SF, on the redwood coast in Humboldt County, California.

    Great forum by the way....I'm going to have to read more on the football post....I've been a football junkie for many, many years and very astute if I do say so myself and many others have as well....IF a 49er fan like myself is welcome being here?

    My good friend is a Viking fan, he too was born & raised in SF - I always ask him Why? And How? He just responses..."I don't know, I've just always liked the Vikings" Personally, I've always liked all the beautiful woman from Minn....

    BTW - I never used a Mac...but have seriously been thinking of getting one....is software a problem?

    No software is not a problem. I owned a PC for six years and kept putting off getting a MAC because of the $$$ and because I could not pull the trigger. Last year after one of my numerous Windows XP crashes I said fuck it and went out and bought and iMAC and brought it home ... IT IS THE BEST PURCHASE I HAVE MADE IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.
    If you can spring for it ... you will not be disappointed.

    Not to get to far off track, but I find alot of PPO stuff when I google, especially Football related discussions (go figure) but never found a computer solution.

    PPO legend grows........ ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
