Hello Hardware fam. I have created a pretty useful "Ultimate 300 WIndows Shortcuts Guide" exclusively for followers. We're about to hit 500K followers on our TikTok page, and I wanted to thank you for your support! You're amazing!

BTW, I sell this guide for $7 on Etsy, but decided to release it here FREE of charge for you as a big THANK YOU for sticking around with me! I couldn't have dreamed of having a 500K community and you've made it possible. ♥

Feel free to download it! Gotta sub to my Famejar page, which is also totally free. If you feel like getting me coffee, you can totally tip me. I won't be mad 😁

Hey Hardware fam. I love reinstalling my Windows 10 installation every year or 2. After a while you start to get errors, your system registry fills up and slows down your PC. In general, your PC doens't feel as snappy as it once did.

Here are the key takeaways:
1) Don't ever keep sensitive files on your Windows OS drive
2) Prefereably use a cloud folder or a NAS to store your important work files. I use a Synology NAS and also back up my current work onto OneDrive. With OneDrive or Dropbox my Windows drive can fail right now and I wouldn't care, because all of the important things are backed up

Hello Hardware Fam! Here's trick that will help a lot of you when the time comes. Recover files from a failed hard drive with a free program called Recuva. You can download it here: https://www.ccleaner.com/recuva

Remember that:
1) Single hard drives WILL fail sooner or later - they are a liability
2) You should never keep sensitive files on a single hard drive. No matter how much it costs
3) If or when it fails, hope that it gets detected by your system. Then you can use Recuva to try to recover the files
4) Always use a NAS type of a device with multiple hard drives (like Synology NAS etc.)
5) IMPORTANT: When my hard drive failed, it was not getting detected by Windows, but it was still running. I went to the "Disk Management", "Quick" formatted it and it was getting detected then. Finally after that I've used Recuva to recover my files.
