Sorry folks, I've found about 4 or 5 messages sitting on Yahoo for a few days that I did not catch. I am forwarding them now. Better late then never.

Protects against crashes and other failures. What I do is create a partition and put nothing but the OS stuff on it. Mine is winME. Any installed programs go on another partition. I've also found out that you don't necessarily need to reinstall some programs once you do a reformat. Just surf to the EXE file, click and go. Others you need to. ----- Original Message ----- From: mdnghtkiss76 To: 24hrsupporthelpdesk@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Sunday, April 28, 2002 9:55 AM Subject: [24hrsupporthelpdesk] formating harddrive I was wondering if I wanted to wipe out my c drive and reinstall windows, will this effect my d drive that I created out of my c drive? It's a partition I created to store my mp3's and I would hate to loose this.
