    I have a problem I have 40 gb master hard drive with windows 98 on it. I also have a 30 gb slavehard drive with windows 98 on it. My slave drive is going bad but i have important files and programs on it. Is there a way i can copy my 30 gb slave onto my master so i can acces all my files. None of my hard drives are full so all my infromation can be but onto the 40gb. Is there a way to do this? Please help soon.

    I guess that depends if the slave drive is functional enough to copy the files. If so, drag-n-drop! I guess I don't really understand why there's an issue.

    Create a folder on the good drive, select what you want on the bad drive (everything if you wish), copy and paste it into the folder you created.

    If you have programs installed on that drive, then they will no longer work because the computer will still think they are on D: For this you'll need a new drive(D:), or partition your drive into 2 parts so there's a new D: drive created on the existing good drive, or reinstall those programs to C:
