Thanks Nukem, but there is another question. I currently have two hard drives on the computer, one the "C" drive and another which in my case is the "J" drive. This is only used for additional file storage and does not contain any Windows software.
Is it possible to unplug the "J" drive, re-install the operating system on the standard "C" drive and then plug in the other hard drive after?
Will the other hard drive retain the information and just appear as drive"whatever" again or will it need re-installing/re-formatting?
Both drives are using the NTFS file system if thats important.
