    Last thing I'm worrying about is OS, data is more important. Windows could be replaced many ways but data like precious personal and business files may be irreplaceable or cost big money to retrieve from dead/ half dead disks. Those should be backed up and never left on boot drive/partition.

    Absolutely agreed, Count! I keep my documents/etc. on an external hard drive and in the cloud on OneDrive.
