Accessing slave drive

vbimport

#1

My computer crashed big time about three weeks ago and I’m working on replacing what I lost. I backed up all my program files on a separate hard drive and installed it as a slave to my xp drive. My problem is this: when I click on the slave windows says it needs to be formatted. I can’t format it or I lose my files. What do I have to do here??
thanks, foghat

What operating system are you using ?
