Although I have maybe 15 gigs of stuff on that drive, most of it is programs. My data files are much smaller. I may be able to get it all onto four or five CDs. I think this is great! There are some programs that I downloaded that I may want to keep on one of the CDs, the zipped or downloaded version, so I can easily reinstall those later.
The behavior of the system varies. This morning I had no difficulty getting web pages to load, but I did not try downloading anything. I am thinking that I will delete a lot of files first, then download virus definition updates and spy detection software, if it lets me. If I can get it to download successfully I will be in a kind of computer heaven, compared to what I've been through.
There is still more software to catalog, including many floppy disk programs, especially drivers. I think it's wise to add those to the list.
