PC - restart it once a month.

Thumbs down Roboot Seldom.

I have 4 computers here running XP Pro with SP2 and 1 with Win2000 Small Business Server and the only time I have to reboot is after Windows Updates or it has been self-inflicted.....

I use Second Copy 2000 from www.centered.com and backup My Documents, favourites, fonts and anything else I think I may need for a rebuild. It works in the background and you get to decide when and how often it does it's magic.

All-in-all a great product.

"Seldom or never" here. I have an iMacG5 20" so it is on almost all the time except for sleepy time! I have had my share of problems with it, the revA machines are nototiously bad. I had HD failure, display problems x2 and melting/burning capacitors! A real joy to use but not without it's problems.

I voted Seldom or Never (but I don't have a Mac). If it's more than that you need to clean up your PC.

I think the restarts were during the time of Windows 98. XP just keeps going like the Energizer Bunny!

Yes, DON'T!

Most ills that it may cure will be superseded by many other problems that upgrading causes.

Short of buying a new computer with the OS you want already installed, format the HD and re-install the new operatring system from scratch.

Upgrading a present OS causes many programs and functions to not work as they did with the old system.

Anyone running hard drives with RAID 0 or RAID 1 technology?

Any problems?

Presume you are talking 'mirror'? Raid 1 is a better choice, fairly seemless most of the time to the user.
