Hello,Before I start, I would like to say why I am doing this. I would like to delete all files, programs etc. on my C drive but not the OS. I was told that formatting my computer is a no-no because it would delete the OS and that I should try the recovery mode. Thing is I don't have the CD so i saw http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/how-to-install-the-windows-xp-recovery-console/
but it would not let me get through the first step when I put in the C drive because my computer says that c:\i386\winnt32.exe /cmdcons" is not available so i was stopped in my tracks. Is there another method to get this recovery onto my computer ( I know I had it before, but I don't know what happened to it.) or is there another way to do what I want without have to use the recovery mode? Thanks for your time.
