cheers hood . its most probebly paranoia on mypart now cos o the grief with my router Pc , im only down in london so we really dont hardly ever see the stuff  you guuys are dealing with . going to a PCX fair tomoroww so hopefully by the evening my baby should be back up and running properly , thanks again good buddy for the feedback. can i ask one more question ... regading mach files for backup . Are ther certain files that i can save and transfer over to a new machine in the event of hostory repeating itself .. INI - Dat - Sys Files that i can jucst copy over to the new system to save time reinventing  the wheel as it were ... i get the impression that when config parameters are changed and you do a save function they must be stuck somewhere. so is it just  one file or many .. save a new config and then did a search for files that were recently updated but got several files so not sure which one was important  :-)

 ::) Hi Guys Not having much luck at the moment . Recently lost my CNc router PC hard drive and since then have seen another one playing up ( Driver Pulse test  erratic or saying toooooooo Slow )  stepper Motor s operate But very jerky and not what im used to seeing from my Baby :-( have got my settings loaded back as per the original machine but now on another PC and something is definietly not right ...My Option is now to invest in a new MOBO hardrive  and Ram and canibalise all the other bits to make a new CNC router PC system ...then i had a thought , with all these portable external drives around i have to ask can mach3 be run form one of these ? the reason being my workshop ( OK OK large Shed Insulated but still bloody cold at this time of year ;-) the router PC tends to live there and don't really want connect / disconnect it everytime i have to stop work for a while,  but it occured to me that if i had all my fil;es screensets etc on an external USB harddrive say, i could get the best of both worls portability/security wise... does any one know if this is (a ) allowed and (B) is it possible ....  8) if Cold is a factor in the PC dyding then will have to do iit the hard way summers almost here :-) but just a thought before i commit to the new system.. have a full license so dont mean to step out of line or invalidate it by asking thi question .

Hi Phil in the end thats just what i had to do , Dont quite know why thats happened , i guess it's just  frustration after seeing my Router PC hard drive die... I had to wipe - uninstall all my Mach 3 files including alll my downloaded screen sets  ( Bugger ) and Blow me if after the 3rd try during the install the Driver test Came up and Voila she's all good again ( Fingers crossed ) now all i have to do is sort out all the little tweeks and setting i had on my working System ,,,( Shoulda Gone to Specsavers s or should that be backed up my settings files ) LOL:-0 anyways Phil Thanke for taking the time to help me with this . hopefully sometime tommorow i can get the stuff done and posted here for all to see :) and this time i will screendump all the setting pages LOL:-)  hate when pc's fix themsleves lie this but at least she's up and running .would have liked to have nailed something to know what to look out for the next time but the driver tip was a big step in the right direction .
