I am using a friend's computer and have committed the ultimate tech party foul of WRECKING!@#! it. I was spoiled by my 80gigs of space on my own comp and was transfering my mp3s ovr to the hard drive via cd. I wasn't paying attention to the available drive space (doh!) and got an error message telling me I was running low on space. No problem, I thought. It's happened before. I started to shift+delete some music (shift+delete sends the file to null space rather than moving it to your recycle bin for those not in the know). Then the screen goes blank and a cursor appears in the upper left of the screen blinking at me unmercifully. I reboot... same thing. I take the hard drive out and connect it to a xp computer and another WIN98 computer and they both tell me I need to format the drive. Neither lets me explore the drive so that I can delete some files.
Question is: Can I access the drive without formatting it and losing everything?
...and will deleting files and making space allow windows enough room to move if this does happen.
I look forward to any and all suggestions. Thanks
I think 20gig hard drive
I think around PIII pentium
I have access also to a 2.7 ghz XP comp with 30gigs of available space.
