My second hard disk (seagate 160 gb) shows various partitions (including recovered data) when using wndows explorer and PM8 rescue disks -as it should. But I find that when using PM8 thru widnows the disk is just showing as "bad"- no separate partitions. I was messing around with PM8, but partitions are still there when using windows exploer ad rescue disks and are accessible.
I want to install XP and programs on 40gb partition on disk 2 and then pics, music and doc on separate partitions. Disk 1 (maxtor 40gb) currently has old copy of XP, but I intend to use this disk to store image.
Questions: 1) Because PM8 thru windows is showing disk 2 as bad do I need to reformat the entire disk?
2) Do I need to switch drives from primary master and slave if the current boot is from disk 1, which I will eventually use as the backup?
