I had vista64ultimate crash totally. I had some external backup. Everything I tried lost some control. After 3 days and lots of advice I used my WinVista disk and reformatted the system and reinstalled everything I could. I decided to upgrade to Win7 Ultimate. I have two 400GB HD's showing 745GB total and 291GB in use. Also my system is very slow and jerky now. I suspect some of the original data is still aboard and taking up space.
When I upgrade, I plan to reformat the disks again, and reinstall WinVista64; then upgrade from there; and then reinstall files from my ext. backup drive. I'd like to do this right!
First, any suggestions about what I've done or intend to do?
Second; I have an IOLO Drive Scribber that I used when installing winxp on a previously used HD. Did the complete scrub and seemed to regain most of the 160GB on it. Everything works fine. Now, any recommendations about getting a very clean scrub and reformat job on the two 400GB HD's using the Iolo Scrubber? Or some other method for reclaiming the two HD's.
