    Cheers, thanks alot, you put in a hell of alot of time and I really
    appreciate it.

    Actually reformatting was probably a blessing in disguise, I cleared
    out a load of junk.

    One more thing if you don't mind, your advice on the best way to create
    system backups in case something happens again.

    Thanks again.
    Hi
    All depends on what you consider important...

    I personally run mirrored drives for /home and other data on this
    desktop, then I have a SLES server running ifolder to sync data between
    my Desktop and netbook. Then have the rest pushed to a mirrored NAS. So
    all important stuff is duplicated on three systems, plus the NAS can
    backup to a USB device...

    Systems I don't care about apart from a few config files, besides you
    can always build an image using SuSE Studio for you exact requirements
    including applications on the build service repositories etc.

    Cheers, thanks for that Malcolm, I've tended to ignore back ups in the past but I will take more notice in future.
