I want to wipe the C drive with loosing what is on the D portion of the drive. I would then like to put this drive in the one my daughter gave me and reformat it with Windows XP and use her drive for storage, having two completely hard drives.
I don't know if one has to be the master and one the slave or if it can just be put in as storage. Once I move what is one the D drive from my computer to her reformated disk that has been added back in, I would renew the C drive and D drive on my computer (the one she gave me). Gee, I hope this makes sense. I am not very computer smart. I did add a CD drive on mine years ago but had great directions from Gateway.
I cannot move the files to another location as my DVD/CD player and recorder has quit on this one (my older one.) I was doing that when it quit. That is why I am trying to save the D drive until stuff can be moved to the empty reformatted disk that is in my daughters. I do have all the disks.
Hope someone can help me and it would have to be kept kind of simple. I am on disability and am not able to pay to have this done. My son's friend that did this to start with is not around. Thanks to anyone who can help. Maggie
