Would you please advice me on this:
- I had a Dell’s comp with 120GB HD with the XP Home edition. A few months ago a couldn’t start the computer (there was missing some system files as I can remember), so I took the comp to the shop and buy the new HD of 120GB HD and the CD XP SP2. Guys in the shop basically placed the HD in the comp and now I have the XP SP2 on my new HD.
- My old HD is attached as the second HD and I am able to see all the data on it and move the files between the HDs.
- Now, I would like to sort out the second HD in the case that something goes wrong with the new one.
Should I format the old HD? And if yes can I use the XP SP2 which is on new HD. I have activation code but for the system on new HD. Or is it possible maybe (if yes please how?) just to have the system on new HD and use the second HD as backup (without the system). These questions are maybe stupid but I am not comp expert but I know some bits-and-pieces (or by these questions I am making the full of myself?!)
