  1. A couple years ago I bought a new Acer desktop computer with Win 10 preloaded on it. Best computer I've ever owned...! Hasn't skipped a beat yet. So I thought it's time to do a system backup, as I did not get a Win 10 source disk with it, and have NO WAY to reinstall Windows if it crashes. With help from a copy of "Windows 10 Step by Step" I apparently succeeded in creating a system image backup on a new hard disk, then proceeded to attempt to create a Boot Flashdrive. There are 6 simple numbered steps in the book. I whipped thru the first 5 with no problem. Step number 6 says "click the CREATE button to start the process". The result is "Windows cannot create........" and gives NO indication of what to do next.... and not a word about it in the book either....!! Anybody know.....? Thanks...!
  2. For years I've been storing my passwords on a couple of secure flash drives which require the correct password to be entered within 5 tries to allow entry. If an incorrect password is entered 5 times, the chip is automatically erased. These chips are a Sandisk product that is no longer available. I'm beginning to think I'd better replace them, as I'm aware there is a limit to how many times flash chips can be erased and reprogrammed without losing data. But I have not found a suitable product. I have tried a couple of newer alternatives (UltrLock and Kingston DTLocker), but both are far too difficult to set up and use than the old Sandisk. Seems almost like learning a new operating system...! Does anyone here know of a currently available security flash drive that works similar to the old Sandisk…? Thanks....!
