 We use a new swappable Windows hard drive for each project to make sure we can still go back even in many years time.   Doesn’t always work if there are time locked licences involved but it avoids files opening with the wrong editor or wrong compiler, especially
 when we use so many different processors.   <o:p></o:p></span></p>

 embedded on the motherboard so disc swapping is easy.   It’s only when you try to boot Windows 7 or something like that on a modern machine it can take a little while.<o:p></o:p></span></p>
