What method are you suing to formatt the drive?? Are you going through windows to format or did you put in the XP disk and use the installtion method?
Is the drive your main drive (With windows installed on it) or an extra drive, is the drive partitioned?

Does quick format work? Or is it just the full format. If you wish to do a full format a quick format can preform the same things just faster. Also do you have 2 drives or just 2 partitions? If you have two partitions try installing windows on the backup drive, just when the format screen comes up in the windows installtion select the "Keep drive as normal", instead of preforming a format. From there you can copy over your backup files to the other partition and use the 2nd as your main drive.
Or another option I woud give is if there is not that improtant data on the back up drive you can delete the partitions and start fresh.
Sorry for all the questions, I just need to understand what you want to do. Just give me a bit more information on what you exactly want to do, like do you just want to format the drive??
