Prayer may be needed….


I’m about to take a major plunge. 

Presently I’m running 32-bit Windows 7 on my somewhat older but still adequate Dell XPS M1210 laptop, with 4Gb of memory and a decent CPU and graphics processor.  So far it seems to work nicely, but I’m wondering if the 64-bit version might work a little better. 

Tomorrow’s big experiment: swap hard drives for a little 180-Gb drive (to keep my original data safe on the big 500Gb drive presently installed!) and see how well everything loads up and boots. 

Last time I tried this, it slowed everything to a crawl immediately after installing Office 2007, but that may have just an an oversight somewhere that’s been fixed by now. 

Will let everyone know what happens when I do it.  I’d also like to hear of any problem reports, comments or other matters regarding using this utility in Outlook, as transferring the image contents from other sources. 

Good or bad, I’d love to hear from you!

  1. Prayers answered -- after a couple of abortive attempts, plus doing something stupid which I won't get into :) -- I've got my Dell XPS M1210 (about three years old) running smooth as a baby's butt with Win7 x64 Ultimate...!

    Now watch, soon as I say this, it'll crash and burn with smoke coming out the sides, right?
