JPEGS taking up 1 GIG?! That would have had to been thousands..
Now thats just WRONG.
And he should have made a folder in his root directory for them.... Thats what I wouldve done...

lol. My question is, how did they take that many jpg's without a 3rd person to take them? Unless he has a camera that can take a pic automatically every few seconds or something. Dude, thats just wrong! Anyway, tell him to get a new HDD. Then tell him to tell u what stuff he wants backed up ;)

BTW, you're always telling stories of fixing ppl's comps. How do these people all ask u and do you get paid?

Its a small town and once a few people know u as "good with computers" u just start getting calls. Charging depends on the problem and the person. If its someone close to me or my family, or a very minor prob, i do not charge.

well... first of all, you have to know how to do it. That's why they're not beating your door down ;)

I get calls all the time for computer help... I'm trying to make an appointment with a guy some nite this week to work on his. I don't even know him.

And ditto RoD on the charges... I don't usually hit up immediate family unless it's a computer that isn't theirs. Otherwise, I try to go easy on people, especially if it's an easy fix.

I charge nothing for family, but heres my out look: Under an hours, eh no big. More than an hour i charge, usually ten an hour but i usually only take two tops. The biggest cash i ever pulled was 300.00 for building the pc, installs etc. I never would have charged that much if he hadn't spent the entire time playing "whats this?".

My charges usually vary... if I get stuck and can't figure it out, I'm not going to charge someone for diagnostic time. (Cuz most of the time I'm just being retarded)
