My only option right now to save my old files is to remove the hardrives and put them in my new comp as slave drives... or I might have to do it 1 by 1 I dunno how many hardrive slots it will have. Because the computer that i had broke down and i cant just transfer it with an external hardrive.
the thing is I remember having problem with my last computer where I put the slave drive in and it often got corrupted... I would double click on the C drive and I couldnt open it... then I would have to reformat the computer and lose all my files.
Is there anyway I can avoid this? Have any of you heard of this problem before?
and are all hardrives different? I remember you had to move the pins to a certain spot to notify if its a slave drive, or the main hardrive... is there any website where i can look it up... or do I need to search for the instructions that came with my old hardrive?
Thx for all the information I really appreciate it.. the info on the hardrive is priceless to me because I produce music and I only backed up so many things on cds (my dumbass should've bought an external hardrive a long time ago).....
but I have so much that wasnt backed up. thx
