I then rebooted the PC (I had a good reason, but can't think what it was) at which stage I got a message saying the f drive wasn't formatted, and asking me to reformat. I haven't done so, but I turned the machine off, gave it 10 minutes and turn the machine on again.
I still have a non-formatted F drive. Any ideas how to recover files from the drive if it isn't formatted? Most of the files on there are backed up, but I have some stuff on there it is inconventient to go to the backups.
Thanks for suggestions
Meant to say, XP -pro, with all the updates etc, running in classic mode.
