Customer Question
I worked with *****...

I worked with ***** *****na last Friday about the problems I had with my computer. He finally came up with the thought that my computer was too outdated for Windows 10 and we decided to uninstall it from my computer. first, I needed to save my files to my remote Maxtor 4 device. It took me so long to do that, plus a 2-day trip to San Francisco for Dr. that I forgot what the next step was. I need help to complete this task.

Technician's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Computer Technician I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Is there anything else important you think the Computer Technician should know?

I talked to someone this morning who told me to unplug the Maxtor device, so it is still unplugged. Will I lose my stored data?
