'nother non stop reinstalling data backup computer guy
Basically people walk in, their PC is busted, needs to be backed up/reinstalled.
99% of the time people are clueless and put their faith in you...
If it boots to windows, I do a 'nirsoft' on it, to retrieve the passwords they didnt know they had("no, my email doesn't require a password etc)
So i get all their internet explorer/firefox/protected storage passwords/logins etc, (I save that on my PC in their backup folder on my desktop)
Then I run 'treesize' on the drive. Anyone backing up files all the time will tell you that you don't want to backup the Temp internet files cuz there is tens of thousands of em.
So shirt delete all temp internet
Then into usr/localsettings\ temp folder, search for *.doc, *.xls, *.jpg(whatever 2k/xp/vista)
If I find any of above I then have to check dates/sizes(not content) with docs in "my documents", and make sure anything in temp is properly located elsewhere. If Its not,I ring the customer.
Same with JPG's(unless they are pronz, then pretty much ignore, as my prons are better/the best?)
Then shift delete local settings/ temp
The backup after that is 10 times faster and im not backin up 40,000 temporary internet files.
I will steal your music, but you dont own it anyway, sorry about that..(will also let you copy my 314GB's of music FOC, and my 160GBs of music vids...I dont own em either
Otherwise, I do the best job I can and I have a top reputation locally for the work.
If you think I could give the slightest toss about your files, your wrong, I simply wouldnt have the time if i wanted. & I repect peoples privacy
I also retain all data for 1 month, in case something f***s up.missing/deleted, atm I have 406GB on my desktop comprising of 715, 305 files/67,994 folders)
Doubtless there is shit in there that I dont want to see, so I dont look.
Also, a friend asked my to look over her 14yo daughters computer, to see what she was up to.
the kid was phone videoing herself and emailing it to guys on hotmail.
I was asked to look, I found & I didnt report it to the police.
Only an idiot would, discression in this job is a must, people are entitled to privacy & to sort thier own problems out, in this case the cops would make a mountain out of a molehill.
The mother would be done for posession of indecent images, fined, in the papers etc.
The girl is now 16 I think, doesnt have a laptop, but spends a lot more time around her family as opposed to sitting up in her room.
We're not all bastards
