The scrubbed computer is working splendidly, and no files were lost. I've been debating a reformat for a while now - though it's painful to have to reinstall programs and reconfigure everything, I had a lot of junk on this computer, and it's really, super nice to have a clean slate to work with. I had a laundry list of things I wanted to do (try Chrome, switch from AVG to Avast, clean off a whole lotta programs I never used and in some cases shouldn't still have...) and it's getting done, even if it's on a rather more rigorous and stressful timeline than I would have picked.
