My 120g HD (master) is not acting right for the last couple days (had a free-ware virus scan go ape - now it's really loud, like it's stuck in low gear) and I'm afraid it will only get worse.
My HP came with XP Pro pre-installed (3yrs now) & have no disk, and while I of course have a "work around" for this part of the problem
- I'd just as soon NOT go through the endless updates, etc.
My OS, book keeping (QB), mucho software, etc, is all here in a nice neat compartment - updated and configured exactly as I'd have it...and I would like to keep it that way
I have a 250g (SATA) slaved on a separate controller (obviously) used primarily for vid/storage and mostly empty, but I'm not sure if this will help me at all.
Also my 120 is "D:\" and my 250 is "C:\ " ...that's right - you heard me.
Is it possible to take the whole she-bang and plop it on another drive and still have it function? Am I an idiot?
Yes, I searched this and didn't find a close enough scenario for my comfort.
Yes, I recognize this might potentially be categorized as an XP query.
and Yes, I really am grateful to you for taking the time to school me on this one.
