Any "watchouts" for taking data off of D partition when C is

Same physical drive,
C has Windows 98SE & all the apps
D has all the data

C is somehow corrupted - the registry basically,
so Win won't start

It happened when I ran the paid version
of Registry Mechanic.

The MS Tech said I could safely hook
that physical drive to my new system,
as a slave, and of course without booting
from it get the data off of the D partition.

Now PC Tools (Registry Mechanic) has
asked me to go into the corrupted C
partition and retrieve or copy some files
for them so they can try to figure out
what happened to my registry.
(re previous post "Worm in RM)

Any watchouts for either operation?

Thanks!

Hi macx...

Once the drive is slaved, there shouldn't be a problem with either of the operations you describe. If it were me, I'd recover my data before anything else...priorities are prioritites.... :tazz:

Appreciate that.

I didn't think so, at least w/getting my data off.

It was the other I was concerned about.
