    That'll just nuke the filesystem tree, it won't physically remove the data or reformat the drive... Same effect, of course.

    The URL says watson in it, but the picture doesn't say watson on the player name or I would have gotten the joke. Hilarious.

    I fixed OpenBackup 'cause I'm pro. Lol
    (I think Install*** Fixer might break it somehow, but since I'm not sure I fixed that hole anyway)
