    Ancient Software, how to back up?

    The only thing I have been able to create is a combination cue & bin files. Then I end up with a new problem, I probably don't know the right way to convert them to iso after trying several products.

    NG on isobuster, will try power iso P.S. The copied files are not recognized by the program, so an iso is needed. There are five disks in the set.

    Microsoft Office Professional 2021 for Windows: Lifetime License $49.99

    I had an Office 2016 license go bad. Bought it from a seller on the H about 3 or 4 years ago. For the price I paid that was OK. The problem was I got no notice and had to quick download Libre office to work with my docs. I am going to buy another one from the same seller.

    For laughs, found an OLD one

    Tested without software in a spare pc and it is still noticeably faster than a SATA 3 7200rpm spinny.

    Where do I find a 17 or 19 inch display?

    I have to find a good 17 to 19 inch display. Does not need to be 2 or 4K. I can't find anything but left over scrap on ebay. Anyone selling new ones that are worth getting? Why a small display? I am married and that is what she wants.

    Cloning with external dock problems?

    I understand that cloning a HD/SSD in an external dock can result in the drive being seen as a removeable drive under some circumstances. I believe this happened to me but an upgrade in place install from 10 to 11 seems to have cleared it. Anyone else see the problem previously?

    For laughs, found an OLD one

    Digging through junk drawers and found an SSD I pulled from a "gaming laptop" and forgot. I don't ever remember SSD SATA 2 drives. It still works.

    Need some advice for a new monitor

    Thanks, not sure if you have been married or for how long, but her reasons are because that is what she wants. I have learned to say "yes dear". If it turns out wrong she always admits it and says can we try again.
