Yes, I am the latest victim of hard drive failure. My 'puter crashed on Saturday night . Went out bought a new hard drive and now have the arduous task of reinstalling everything again. This bites!
The only positive is that I get a clean install of FS9, which got me thinking: is it worth having different installations of FS9? Like one for Civilian air and one for Military air? Guess I'll have to research that, too bad we (SOH) lost all of the old threads.
I'll try not to get too annoying asking silly questions, but I would like to set FS9 up the right way from the start. Glad I only had a basic install for FSX, no addons, cuz that would twice the pain in the rear.
