Class Summary 5-7-2015

We took a look at as a safe place to download programs from. Also sites like bleeping computer, cnet download,,, and the legitimate sites of the maker of the software. Here is an article on safe sites that is pretty good

Belarc Advisor is a program that does an audit of your computer. It is not a fixit program. It is a reporting program. It tells you what hardware and software is in your machine.

What do you think of USB Flash Drive to backup hard drive? As long as it is large enough. Can get 1, 2, and 3 tb portable drives for under $100. A large (64 or 128gb) USB Flash drive may cost more than that.

We have many sources of free cloud storage, google drive, windows live, dropbox, amazon, and here is one more to check out:
50GB of Online Cloud Storage, for FREE
Our Personal plan provides users with 50GB of FREE online file storage and additional features to backup, share, edit, and access your data from anywhere you have Internet access. Simply store your files in your ADrive account & access from any device, at any time.

Here is an article from the UK about their thoughts on the best 10 free cloud storage sites.

We also talked about having a UPS to protect your PC from power outages, especially the ones that only last a few seconds.

Wish I could remember all we covered. Let me know if you want clarification of something I missed in the notes.
