I am running windows 98 se on my computer and I had the FAT get corrupted on my first hard drive. So I repartioned it and formated it and reloaded Window onto it. Now I am unable to access the second hard drive through windows. The drive shows up under bios but I have not checked if it is found under Dos yet. I really need to find a way to access the information on this drive it is extremely important.

How big is the drive and what did you format it to (i.e. FAT32? FAT16? NTFS?). Remember that Win98 won't detect large drives so you might have to repartition into smaller partitions first before it detects.

I do believe that it is FAT 32. The first drive is 15 gb and the second is 6 gb
