Move back to the HD and make backups if you are worried about your data - or move to a raid 1/5 to handle drive failures. Or raid AND external backup. Or...

comment Visual Studio - Using GIT and SVN
Does this work within Visual Studio, or would that have to be command-line? I'm not averse to command-line but I am wanting to start inside of VS first.

comment Visual Studio - Using GIT and SVN
@Ramhound VS comes with TFS & GIT built in. And I use AnkhSVN for SVN integration. But to switch, as far as I know, involves tools > options > Source Control > Switch. So it's VS wide. My question is how does someone work inside VS if they have different source controls to work in.

comment Should I install Internet Explorer updates although I disabled it?
The real question is why SHOULDN'T you install the update? Does it interfere with an application you need to use? Otherwise, if it makes your computer safer...

Do a complete clean install? Use the CD Key and download an ISO from Microsoft and erase everything.

comment What is wrong with this Windows shutdown command?
you need a toggle for shutdown: R for restart, S for shutdown, H for hibernate, P for shutdown now (can't use T), etc. /f /t 120, etc

comment What is wrong with this Windows shutdown command?
Learn something new... I always do /s /f /t 0... glad to know I can be lazy and just do /p /f now. That's five key strokes I'll save!

comment DOCX to PDF… with Custom Document Properties
@bibadia the main issue with sticking with DOCX isn't document editing/updating (I've actually explored updating the current process with OOXML and don't think THAT part would be onerous.). THE issue is printing from inside of a Windows Service (Desired change: GUI to Windows Service). Everything I read says it requires word to be installed on the server and that word doesn't play well as a service (modal dialog errors, requests for user interaction on errors, required user registry entries, etc).

I'm looking to do similar (DOCX to PDF, keeping CustomDocumentProperties and Fields). Did you have any luck or solutions?

You need something today... maybe a bit to soon of a turn around, but you could look into something like Simian Army/Chaos Monkey github.com/Netflix/SimianArmy/wiki (Or similar)
