I have a second hdd (slave) which i use to store data on. All the pics, vids and music i want, i have stored on there. when i reinstall windows, will the data still be on there? ie will windows recognise the slave drive and the partitions, and hence keep it as it is?
If you have just your XP installation on the primary drive why not try a repair install? Remember that you might need to save your e-mails, favourites and address book to your data (slave) drive first. A repair install shouldn`t overwrite them but better safe than sorry. A full re-install will almost certainly overwrite the files.
I have windows on C: and all saved docs (music/pics ect... stored on D: & E: and have formatted Windows XP a few times , it doesnt affect the other hard drives , I didnt unplug anycables just simply formatted and reinstalled Windows on C:
Now i am still intrigued by my other post. click here
this is still a problem. when i first plugged it in (the MP3 player) it showed and windows made an attempt to install hardware for it. o swithced the MP3 player off and it wont show again (windows does not register that it is there)
