OFF-LINE


Off-Line tags:, originally uploaded by Kirk Howard.

Today is the day I make the migration to two new storage platforms. Before I make the move, I will be making a clean slate.

1. Back-up existing files and folders (twice)
2. Make new list of necessary software to reinstall
3. Create virtual image of software.
4. Double check system
5. Triple check software and system.
6. Reformat internal HD
7. Reload OS
8. Download critical upgrades
9. Verify OS functionality
10. Make virtual image of HD
11. Initiate Time Machine on New External HD
12. Make additional virtual image.
13. Reload software
14. Migrate file and folders back to internal HD
15. Test system and Bob’s your Uncle.

Goggles… check! Hard Drives… check!, Software… Check! Patience… Double check, CHECK!

Wish me luck I’m going in…
