The problem sees to be so severe that the PC slows to a crawl, even presenting the blue screen of death. Disconnecting the offending drive makes everything run OK. It is so bad the pc appears from time to time as if it's locked up.
I've bought a new drive and installing it but I'd like to get some of the files off the bad drive. Given the performace of the PC with the drive connected, any suggestions as to how I can connect it and use PC inspector or perhaps boot to dos and run chkdsk?
