Yesterday I tried to install a new C drive because mine was running slow. The idea was to install a new C drive without much on it and use my old C drive, which was pretty full as a secondary slave drive, deleting Windows of it and just keeping my files.
I installed Windows on the new drive OK, but when I started up with my old C drive attached as a slave drive, I was told there was an error with it and it needed to run chkdsk. I let it do that and it proceeded to delete almost all my files from my old C drive.
I've now restored from my backup which I made a week ago, meaning I've only lost a week's work, so it's not too bad.
Does anyone know if it's possible to do what I was trying to do, and if so how to go about it?
