i was thinking about adding another harddrive i have to my computer,to gain more space.
1. i am afraid that i contains viruses and malware and such,so im afraid to connect it to my current comp to erase the whole harddrive
2.if i indeed do put in this new hd do i have to put on a copy of windows xppro aswell(i have on my current hd) or can i just hook it up and it will recognize my operating system?
the harddrive i want to hook up currently has windows me on it. and i am almost 100% positive it contains viruses and malware
the harddrive i have in my comp has windows xp pro, but it unfourtuneatly is not a genuine copy(person sold me it without disc) so i want to know if i have to buy a copy to put on other hd or not.
i hope that wasnt too confuzing.
