(I swear I just posted this...but it didn't take the first time :confused: )
My 180 GB drive is my slave. It is recognized as the full size after SP1 was installed and some piece of software from the manufacturer. Now I want to reformat my master. I want the 180 to act as a backup during the reformat. I realize it won't recognize 180 GB upon fresh install...so I will only back up under 120 GB. Will my 180 GB drive with <120 GB on it be perfectly recognized after a format? I don't want my drive to hide some data in a sector that will be hidden to a fresh install of Win XP before SP1 will be added. Any info?
