I have never done this before, and I hope I wouldn't have to again any time soon...
Ichigo, my PC, had been failing in his performance as of late. After a few system checks, it appeared as though he had a worm infestation I just could cure. And so, before the worms reach my files, I decided to reformat him and re-install his entire operating system.
It was a fairly complete success. So far, Kaien is performing very well. His reaction time is much faster than Ichigo’s, but I suppose that’s mainly because not all of his programs have been installed as of yet. I have to say, it wasn’t too bad for a first timer like myself… But I am wondering whether or not I should have wiped the entire HD clean before re-installing everything.
Well, it’s a bit too late for that now. If I want to do that, I’ll have to wait until the next reformat.
Ichigo was 5-years-old before he was turned into Kaien. I’ll miss him dearly, but it was time for him to go.
On another note, I was able to find an English copy of Paint Tool Sai. Everyone on Deviant Art has been talking about this program for a while, so I thought I might check it out. Now if only I can find some tutorials on this program so that I won’t have to go in blind.
