    Thumbs down Where have my tutorials gone?

    hi everyone:

    If you're wondering where on earth my coverage of SetupBuilder and latest features has gone, the answer is simple; I've fallen on hard times both financially and technologically. The short version of the story is as follows:

    1) My Hard drive that has all my installer images for all my apps has died unexpectedly and needs to be repaired (which costs major $$$). 2) My computer that I use to record the videos has finally bitten the dust and given up the ghost (R.I.P WINX-BUX1). and 3) other personal and life issues have prevented my from really getting a grasp on the latest SB features due to those issues taking away from my free time to really dive deep into the SB.

    As soon as i can get a shot to get my life back on track, I'll be back in the studio recording more SB training content.

    Please keep me in your thoughts

    Not sure if it is possible, but here's what I have done in the past with dead hard drives. If you don't have an oscilloscope (sounds like maybe not) to find out exactly what is going on, get the model and revision number off of the printed circuit board. Go to your favorite on-line auction and search for the model. Look closely at the pictures and/or send a message to the seller to see if their board matches your circuit board. If so, more than likely you can purchase older drives for 10-20 dollars and when it get to your door, just swap the boards being very careful about the connectors and such. They are very delicate so be slow and patient. If all goes well, you will have a repaired hard drive and then just get a thumb drive and make a quick backup before anything else happens.

    To he honest, I don't have the skill set physically or visually when it comes to making those kinds of repairs but hey... one of these days I'll find a cheap way to fix it
