comment What is the most secure, efficient and cheap way to backup files?
Damned; typed a whole "answer" and then the question got closed :-( Then I'll just post the most important part: use Glacier. This is for long-term storage, dirt-cheap ($0.01 per GB per month) and has an "average annual durability of 99.999999999% for an archive". Examine the pricing closely though; but as long as you're not restoring many GB's a month you'll be fine. The rest of my answer included a NAS, external USB drives and Syncback but there's no room for all of that in a comment.

comment Why does reformatting reduce Windows start time?
Reading quotes like it is typical for it to take 10-15 minutes and takes, say, ~5 minutes to login and the login time is much shorter (~30 seconds) I just scratched my head... I've had a lot of desktops, laptops and whatnots over the past decades but "login times" of more than 15 to 20 seconds was last seen in the nineties by me. 10-15 minutes to log in? Really? More than 10 seconds, nowadays, would make me dive in and figure out/fix whatever was wrong or, as a last resort, reinstall. Are you sure you aren't exaggerating things a bit? (Just curious)

comment Removing FLEXnet Connect Update Manager
I'm guessing it came with some Adobe (Creative Suite?) software. I'm not sure if it's safe to remove this; the software might stop functioning as it's part of some licensing system.
