    Hello again!

    If you have not been following my last post. I was putting NTFS on my 80 gig hd.

    Well what I did was put everything I needed on the one drive. I put the 80gig as the master and the 20 gig with everything I had as the slave.

    Well I installed xp. I then looking at the other drive. TOok everything I needed off that drive.

    WEll the drive was active I put on so it made the drive letters for the old drive as c: and d:
    Then it made this drive I just put in (80) as G:

    So i deleted the c and d drive. Well just deleted the partions. So i thought that way i could make this drive active...I did..and make it c: Nope..stays there.

    Well while looking at the tree in window explorer.. I now longer get nice looking icons to click on. Just the words and + to know there are more folders. I still see the nice looking icons over in the right though when I click on them. Is this NTFS default or did something really get FUGGED up!!!

    I sure hope some of you are around..i don't want to this to take all night!!!!!


    Please help...and thank you very much for your time.

    Slap this man - me that is.

    That is what I did. I booted with the rom. created a ntfs partion. THen formatted it. All with the xp cd. I had the other drive in there so i could transfer the other stuff.

    SHouldn't of been a problem though....I thought.

    Good to see you again catch..i'll leave you alone after this....

    I didn't know I had to delete something that was not there on the 80 gig...Was there a default FS?

    80 was brand new. SO i created.

    But I see your other point. I should just do all the installing with the one drive in and add it in later...Hmmmmmm

    Oh well..I guess you learn something new everyday..THis sure isn't the first time I built a computer..i have no clue why I am sucky so bad.

    Okay one more thing bud. i just installed the OS with just the 80 gig drive. Now if I plug in the other drive. Should I be able to transfer files without screwing up the drive letters?

    I just deleted the partion..created another one and formated and now just gone done installing.

    Wow..i just don't know if I am burned out or what...

    I'm about to jump off the roof. I just don't know anymore.

    Before using FAT32 I have done the same thing before...Is NTFS picker?

    I Just don't know...
