Do you have a new GUID, or does that stay the same because you've got the same Steam account? You better send me your GUID again just so I can check.

yes feels nice and snappy again


Can anyone recommend disk imaging software,  I AM not wanting to go through this again in a hurry.
I have made an image with windows 10 built in imaging thing, but not sure if its good enough. I want to make an image once Assetto corsa and a few other games are installed, will games work still after being reinstalled from an image,  noob alert  :)
Any advice om this matter is most welcome  8)

Easus ToDo free version is all you need, recommended by my local PC Repairman Guru who was able to recover a stuffed Data Disk which was badly corrupted and had not been backed up !!

Windows 10 has reset this pc built-in and saves all your old files. I've done Windows disc imaging but never tried recovery from it, I stopped using it and switched to macrium because it allowed me to save directly to a network drive (nas) Windows didn't for some reason.

Oh and ts, I for some reason still have to regularly reassign my wheel button (still active in ts settings but still needs to be reassigned for some reason), I think it must be fanatec drivers...dunno?

You might have something else grabbing that button?

I had to do that for years, until one day it rectified itself.
Now TS just crashes 2 times before running stably.
