About 2 months ago I combined my brothers hard drive with mine because it wouldn't work in his computer. I set it up so my harddrive was the master and the other the slave. My brothers windows is all messed up and I cant reinstall windows on it without reformating. If I go to scan it with adaware, norton or even try to defrag it, it freezes my computer. I was wondering what is causing it to freeze also when I restart my computer it tries to run a scan safe disk thing and it freezes during that. I was wondering if that could be disabled.

Considering that you do have a bigger Harddrive you can copy all of his files onto your Harddrive and then reformat his drive and install a fresh copy of Windows.

As with Samm's question.... that is something that would be def. helpful to know. From what I understand is that you already made it a slave drive, but some clarification doesnt' hurt :-)
