I've had a very frustrating week! Computer problems.......some caused by me.....true.
My external backup disk wouldn't back up! It went through everything and at the last moment I got an error message. Still working on this problem.....hours of reading everything I could about Time Machine and the FreeAgent Drive. Still not working ..... and I'm sick of the message that keeps coming up telling me to try Disk Utilities and running the Diagnostic test. I've done this, several times, and it says the Disk is fine!!! Any suggestions, other than chucking it as far as I can???
Next, I couldn't empty the computer Trash Bin!!! Another day messing around until a very helpful Welsh man on some forum, suggested I download a little program call TrashIt. Left that running overnight and thankfully came back to an empty Trash bin :) Hopefully with no other nasties attached.
I'll own up, this problem was caused by me. The last time my Backup disk played up I thought perhaps it would help if I 'trashed' a few of the early files! (even though this should happen automatically......yes I know !). This is apparently a big NO NO and was why the Trash wouldn't empty.
Here's the thing, when companies make techie stuff I really think it would be helpful if they could add a list of the things you shouldn't do in plain speak...........you know for those of us who aren't or don't have access to a geek...........is that a big ask ?
So now I'm sitting in front of 'said' computer after a relaxing day spent sewing with friends. I've made just one card this week and that's ready for AnnaBelle's on Friday. Did you check out the February release? Some lovely Easter goodies!
I do have a share though. Remember this post where I shared a picture of a Wren who visits my garden. I wanted to try and sketch one, something I haven't done in ages. Well it took a few goes and lots of rubbing out, but eventually I got something I was reasonable happy with. I coloured it using Prisma's....be kind! I think I might put this in a small white frame for my NEW room which is coming along nicely!!!
Is it Friday yet???? I'd quite like this week to be over :)
