The last couple of days I've had some probs starting bf4 where it goes all the way to loading the map and then all disappears, so run the game repair but still every now and then it did the same. I have had this prob before and generally within a day or two a new driver for the gpu is released and all is fine again. Just now the same a new driver from nvidia has appeared so installed it. I know the latest drivers are generally the best to have but my question is, do they deliberately sabotage the links to the old driver so you have to use the new driver or is there a compatibility issue if the program is now set to use the new driver :unsure:.
Questions...questions and so few answers 😂😂

SSD failure
I have had loads of failures on HDDs before but had never encountered it happening on an SSD. Its a 500Gb I've had for years where I had all the games, Norton backup and some pics using about 1/3rd of it and now it stopped working. My main drive 1Tb SSD is now carrying everything. None of it really matters except for the pics (might have them on the camera's mem card). Does anyone know if and how to get that data back ?

Have a look at some solutions before doing anything. Might be worth bunging into an external USB case an seeing if that makes any difference. Try a different port connection and any other non-destructive things before anything that may damage the data. Run the windows disk stuff too. Hope that helps.

If you remember when I got my GoPro I bought a big mem card which in the end was not compatible as too big, well thats the card thats in my camera and although I have downloaded pics from it I dont recall ever deleting any pics from that card 🤞

Dont trust any of any type now, I have a 2Tb external HDD that was only turned on when I needed to save something and then one day it just wouldnt turn on.

Maybe opt for a cloud solution like Microsoft OneDrive or Google Drive. Could be expensive depending on the amount of storage needed tho

I have a 2TB external HDD here too. Doing backups every few months, so I guess when the HDD would die, I would notice it somehow. If my PC would die the same time, that would be really bad luck. So I'm fine with it.
Personally I wouldn't want all of my data on a companies server.

I have OneDrive, GoogleDrive and Norton Backup Drive but never use them as I never remember the password I used 🙃

Looks like the same as my brother is using (he may has a more expensive one, but Synology and NAS sounds familiar :D) If my internet connection could handle more than 200KB upload, I would have something similar too.
