I've had virus problems and as a result am thinking that life might be easier if I just wipe my C drive and start again from scratch. Obviously there's issues about backing up important data which need to be considered.
The question I'm asking is whether there's any danger to the contents of my additional (F:) drive if I do a full 'System Recovery'?
My plan is to move my needed data and files from the C: Drive where the operating system is..over to the F:Drive..then wipe C:Drive and re-install XP there (on C: again).
Another issue I forsee is that by performing the System Recovery...will the computer think its back to its original factory setup? If so, how do I tell it that there is in fact an additional HDD, and additional RAM (which I installed after purchase.)
Any help greatly appreciated. If I can get to the bottom of these issues - I might save one of the experts time on the HiJackThis thread!
