No problems here, I think,
Just mount the disk as secondary disk on any of your two machines, or put it in an external USB-enclosure (that will only connect to your XP-machine). Then use your favorite file manager and/or burning tool for that machine to copy the files to your OS hard disk and/or burn them to CD or DVD.
Not sure which forum to really post this in.
I am hoping for some input on which way I should go.
I have a couple hard drives (60GB),(FAT32) from long ago, that got a virus and ate the boot sector, I ended up using a AVG rescure disk and scanned them, it found some things and deleted them or fixed or quarantines can't remember now, it was from a floppy disk.
I could in dos mode see all the files in my documents as they were scanned that I want to save.
So I am hoping I can navigate to them also.
Anyway, I have a computer running only WIN98SE, VERY small HDD(Crud can't remember, 15 or 30 GB,) ( and I have one running only WINXP Home (NTFS).
I want to hook the drives up as secondary or whatever, and burn the files that I can find to CD.
So what are some good options, AND Precuations.. ? as in hopefully not infecting the other computer and such.
Juts hook up the "bad" drive to my Win98 Computer and start with a full scan after it boots ? I am now using AVAST!4.
Then see if I can find the files. IF the drive is even found and or navigateable ofcourse.
or install WInXP (in FAT 32, I guess, ?) as a second OS on that computer ?
I also have the decision to make of what buring program see, my NERO 5, or 1 of the Freebies like CD BurnerXP, I would like to use my Portable app burning software but Apparently it will not run on my WIN 98, even though I can run other programs right from the USB flash drives.
Well I will stop here because I tend to give alot of choices and information.
Hope fully someone understands where I am at .:)
