My question on broken filter
I very much appreciate the various answers. I will be sure to keep them in mind in the
After I posted, though, I realized I had other issues that looked like they would take
an inordinate amount of time, even when this was fixed, so I simply took the laptop in,
explained that virtually everything I need is on the cloud, and directed them to scrub
the disk and start over. That made the specific question irrelevant, for now, but if
the same sort of thing comes up again, I will be much better prepared to handle it.
THANK YOU ALL!
