As shit usually happens it did. Shut down the BBS and Platinum Express to apply a couple Windoze updates and it happened. The old dell rolled over on it's back and died. It did this on 08/15/18 but i managed to get it back up again. Unfortunately I couldn't get that lucky again.

The good news is - I have another (newer model) in route that should be here tomorrow. It's has W10 on it but originally had W7 so if i get real lucky swapping the hard drives will be a charm. Everything is on the F: partition and nothing was lost.

If I don't get lucky - I may put the bbs drive in as a secondary and try running it off W10.

Such is life in paradise.. devil_laugh_gif

OK we're back up bbs.fidosysop.org. I'm doing some maintenance and backups today so the bbs will be up and down most of the day.

Absolute PITA installing W7 on a W10 machine but persistence paid off! wink
