I use software called "ChronoSync'. http://econtechnologies.com

Unfortunately for you it's Mac only, but I've just found this software that claims to be as good for Windows.


ChronoSync not only backs up all your files, you can also create a 'bootable back up' of your main drive. In the event that your main drive fails, you can simply boot up using your spare and it's all there ready to go. I'm sure this other product does the same.

I stress that I want to make a clone(exact copy) of my hard drive. I'm not just talking about the data files, but all the programs and everything else needed to boot and run my operating system.

This is due to my desire to survive intact from a hard drive crash so I can get back to work quickly and not have to reinstall the operating system and all the programs. As recently happened and I am still missing half of the software programs I had before the crash.

I'm pretty sure that Joe has played a couple of different Edwards set-ups before his current 396A.

The 321 with rose tuning slide, the slide with the Bass crook, and the sterling Alessi T2 was his horn when I bought mine. Later, he experimented with the 324 bell (I think it's a double buffed version of the 321 - just a bit lighter) and Harrison, I think you're right - I'm pretty sure at some point he was also trying a straight .547 slide as well. He lists his equipment on some of his recordings in the liner notes, so you can find some info there as well.

The info on Edwards site doesn't get updated that often, and not everyone supplies them with current data. Also, we're trombone players - trying new toys every once in a while.

I would like to see a compilation, a  more complete list of
Scammers. A list with their emails what sites they contacted you through and
where are they located if known. Apparently this is Worldwide, as I have been contacted  by Scammers thru posts I put on German and UK sites. Over a period of 3 yrs I had collected over $10,000
in useless checks for instruments I was selling.

I don't know if you got my first message.  I have a bach Artisan A47 lightweight slide if you are interested.  It's in great condition. Let me know. I can send pictures.  Bill

At this time of year my church runs a survey to generate ideas for sermon topics for January.  This is a cunning plan to get people to come along to church to hear their ideas discussed.

This year the question is "What are we?" which is supposed to get you to think about what makes us as individuals and as a species who we are.

Even though you guys aren't likely to come along to our church services I'd still like to find out what you think.  I thought some additional questions on the same theme could be:

What value or worth do we have?
What are we by nature?
Where did we come from?
How should we be treated?

You don't actually need to keep a backup of Windows and other Microsoft apps as a hedge for hard drive failure.
If you get a new hard drive, the best thing to do is to download the Windows ISO file from Microsoft (onto a USB stick for free) and install Windows onto the empty hard drive using that.
The Microsoft security key (which authenticates your software license) is linked to the motherboard - not the hard drive, so if you install a fresh copy of windows onto a new hard drive but have the same motherboard the Windows license will come up as authentic. The same applies to Microsoft office.

You would only need your backup for your content files.

Niger won't have the legs of Benghazi because the Dems won't put nearly as much energy into pursuing fictitious conspiracies as the Republicans do.

It was also President Obama's call to send troops there. Pre-Trump.

Actually, although it's terrible for those who knew the soldiers killed, they were elitely trained and willingly took on the risks, in an area that is important for the war on terror, so I suspect they judged their duty there well worth the risks. I think Pres. Obama was trying for a more effective way of dealing with violent extremists for the people living in the areas involved than George Bush's Iraq invasion and subsequent full-scale policing actions.

Hi Graham
I use a "WD My Passport" portable hard drive to keep a backup for my whole hard drive. It uses the WD proprietary software and doesn't require a power supply.


After it is initially set up (which must be quite straightforward as I don't remember much about doing it), whenever you connect it to your PC (by USB) it updates the backup copy automatically in the background. If your PC is always set up you can leave it connected.
It contains a copy of my entire windows setup as well as all my content.
There are probably cheaper ways to achieve the same thing but I think it's worth the money for the convenience of not having to do anything other than plug it in. WD also offer space in the cloud to store another backup if you want.
In the event of a catastrophic hard drive failure, I imagine it would be fairly straightforward to copy everything down from the WD to a new drive (haven't had to do it yet).

Good luck
