My service is unique because I provide my customers with free rescues by voice whenever their operating system needs future repairs. This is made possible by partitioning the hard disk. I move the data folders to the data partition. Finally I paste onto the data partition, an image of the partition running the operating system. Free system rescues wipe clean the operating system, leaving customer's data intact on the data partition. I do this for Windows, Linux & OS X

Around Christmas 2016 I decided to deploy 600 songs to the data partition. Now I usually don't bother giving a free music CD.
The 600 songs were a result of my addiction to 8Tracks.com which began from near Christmas 2015 to Christmas 2016. Each playlist is an 80 minute full music CD I would burn then rip the tracks and upload to 8Tracks.com
I created over 35 music CDs to get 600 tracks. So average full CD contains 17 tracks
Checkout my music playlists at 8tracks.com:
