We Hates It

Re-installing games and software. Due to a series of glitches and screwups fixing the glitches, I’m currently reinstalling all my games. After reinstalling Windows. Multiple times…. Stressing me out and pissing me off. First world problems, eh?

Still got one problem I can’t resolve… for reasons that I don’t entirely understand, I ended up with two installations of Win 7, one on each of my drives. I’ve pretty much fixed that now (main reason for the re-installation), but the Windows directory is still there and can’t be removed. The worry is that months ago, I was in this same exact situation — until the system crashed for Idunnowhat. When it came back up, the old installation was bootable, and I have constantly had to tell the system which installation to use when I started up.

I don’t want to do a complete reformat of the larger drive; it’s got too much on it (more than the smaller drive can hold). And I don’t want to risk having a repeat of this situation. Windows won’t let me delete the unused directory from inside File Explorer. Is there another way to handle this? DOS command line prompt?

And I hate reinstalling all my software. Hate. Hate. Hate.

“Dammit, how many times is the download going to pop up UNDER the browser?”
“Why the hell can I NOT download Minecraft for Curse, or Twitch, or whatever?”
“What was my password for Norton again?”
“Damn you AT&T, 2.5Mb/s is not enough!”
“Java….”
“Oh man, all my saved games….”

    More hard drives are cheap. I even have one dedicated for the regular backup.
