I have been experiencing some problems with my computer freezing when playing games and playing clips which seems to have got worse. I am also having problem with other software and have decided to do a format C.
I have 2 120gb hard drives in my PC. The last time I did a format C I copied all my files to my second hardrive and also back up files. After I formated and reinstalled windows it was unable to see any of the files on my second drive. I am now scared to do this incase I loose all my files again.
If I disconnect the second drive before I re format will this protect the files or do I run the same risk of not being able to see them after reformating and re connecting the drive?
Any advise is appreciated on this and also is there a website that gives step by step instruction on how to do a safe format c.
What you need to do first is save all the drivers on your hard drive for your hardware etc with WinDriver Expert from click here free save the drivers to your other disc as you only need format C: when you have reinstalled run the drivers to restore them
