I bought this from DELL XPS061great system.

It came with 2-250gb HD in raid 1 config where c: drive is mirrored or backed up onto the D drive i guess using Norton ghost.
Turns out I discovered last month that the norton ghost 10 expired 90 days after I bough this system 3-5 years ago. All the while the Intel matrix manager said everything was A-OK.

So besides backblaze which I dont especially like. 4 ext HD, a network drive crippled by the use of an equally useless backup program called MEMEO, I have relied on back up onto my D drive that has sat UNUSED for this long.

There is no backup on this drive although I think it should be mirrored through some magic program built into the motherboard....

Can someone offer an alternative? possibly change configuration of the drive D: or offer some solution? I wouldn't object to somehow up grade both drives to a TB but wonder how I can achieve that?

thanks in advance

You have an open malware log topic at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic425232.html/page__p__2455869#entry2455869 .

Until that top[c is resolved, you should refrain from asking questions or changing anything on your system.

Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the logs you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on, the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Now that your log is posted and you are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another Malware Removal Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic.

PM sent OP.
