As shit usually happens it did. Shut down the BBS and Platinum Express to apply a couple Windoze updates and it happened. The old dell rolled over on it's back and died. It did this on 08/15/18 but i managed to get it back up again. Unfortunately I couldn't get that lucky again.
The good news is - I have another (newer model) in route that should be here tomorrow. It's has W10 on it but originally had W7 so if i get real lucky swapping the hard drives will be a charm. Everything is on the F: partition and nothing was lost.
If I don't get lucky - I may put the bbs drive in as a secondary and try running it off W10.
Such is life in paradise..
OK we're back up bbs.docsplace.org. I'm doing some maintenance and backups today so the bbs will be up and down most of the day.
Absolute PITA installing W7 on a W10 machine but persistence paid off!
