Last week my work laptop was experiencing peformance issues. We figured out that the hard drive was going bad. HP sent a new one in less than 24 hours. Today was the day I set aside to work on it. I began at 7 a.m. and it wasn't until 6 p.m. until everything was restored and all the software was installed and the settings configured properly. There are still a couple of things to tweak.
How annoying to spend the entire day on this.
