Don't have a problem here as such, just want to ask for some advice on re-installing XP.
My system has become quite slow recently and is taking a while to fully load up the OS and components and I want to re-install XP from scratch. I have 2 hard drives installed and plan on moving all my important docs etc onto my storage drive if they aren't there already. Will the new install be able to see the drive OK ?
Now, my XP is SP1, if I re-install with this, can I still connect to windows update to download SP2 and all updates or do I need to get a disk with SP2 on it ?
I use Outlook 2003 as my mail client and would like to keep all my current e-mails. Is it possible to copy a mail file to my storage drive and then copy it back over and they would still be there ? (Pretty sure I could do this with Outlook Express).
It's going to take me an eternity to re-install all my programs, but it has to be done !
Thanks for any advice
