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 program did you use to back up your files ?
What operating system are you using ?
Do you know what format the slave drive is fat32, ntfs , etc
I used xp's xcopy. fat32 system. slave drive is also fat32.thanks, for the reply
Have you tried to use the Xcopy to put it back?
