I have a Win2K system harddisk that I suspect is infected with malware and/or viruses. I want to attach it to a current known clean Win2k system as a secondary (non-system) drive, clean it, extract some data, and then wipe the drive. (Or just extract the desired data without extracting any of the malware!)

I'm concerned with infecting the current drive when I attach this drive ...
Any advice on how to retrieve the data safely?
