I know I said this before but this time I'm serious. I'm going to reformat and start XP fresh and clean. Here's the deal though, slash current configuration setup. I have an 80GB Maxtor which is the primary drive, and a 20GB WD for backups, MP3s and pics. I have ANOTHER identical 20GB WD in my drawer from when I had a RAID-0 array (so 2-WD's and 1-Maxtor).
I'd like to get my raid array back using the WD's but one of the drives, as I mentioned, is home to all my backup stuff. SO.... Question.... If I transfer my backup stuff BACK over to the primary drive, get my Raid going and formatted with XP installed, will I run into problems booting up since my old drive (the maxtor) has an OS onboard still? I'm pretty sure the answer is yes but maybe someone has a trick or something they can share with me. You might ask, well why don't you just put it all on CD/R? Well... because about 14GB of MP3's tells me that would take a LOT of disks.
Hope that all made scense.
