I have been using a slave drive for storage mainly. I am now having some problems with my C drive, and need to reformat (it has become truly sluggish).
Is there an way to uninstall some programs present in my slave drive (is there actually a control panel in there?) prior to changing it over to the master, so that I can get most of my data cleaned out and "slimmed" down? I want to get rid of some unecessary stuff and make a clean start, but would like to retain as much control as possible over the slave drive prior to making the final "move". Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Hi monkeysee,

If I understand you correctly, you want to reformat your C: drive.

Your current slave drive will not be affected if you do that, except
that any programs on it will be devoid of registry enteries. You may save
data, such as e-mail or whatever on the slave drive, and then reformat
the C: and do a fresh install on C:.

Programs on the slave drive will generally not work when you reformat. But
data will still be fine.
