I just built a new system for a lady.New system has windows xp on it.Installed old hard drive with windows 98se in it as slave drive.Bios recognizes it as slave ok.She called and said was having trouble transfering all her files to new drive.I have never done that,didnt think it should be to hard though.When you go to my computer it is shown as F drive.Cant she just open up files in old drive and right click and hit sent to c drive? anyway any help from someone who has done this would be appreciated.Thank you,keep up good work

she was trying to drag and drop them to new drive,just found article that said when moving files from one drive to another you must hold down shift key when doing so .Guess i will have her try that.Thanks for helping,will have her try that also.
