I am in a situation where I regularly suffer brief flickers in my electricity (getting fixed soon, it's horrible) and I fear it's going to affect the health of my work desktop. The obvious solution is to get a UPS, but that isn't an option right now.
Is there any software I can use to help? Is there something I can do to slow down how often my disk writes? Are there any Windows settings I can change? Is there anything I can use that can regularly scan and correct any corrupt sectors of my HD? I'm running Windows 8.1 Pro.
