Is this possible???

I want to know if it's possible for me to do this:
I will partition my hard drive and install XP again on the second partition. Then I want to move my files from the first partition to the second and then delete the first so that I will have moved the important files. I want to do this because i have added a lot of "garbage" into my hard drive and want to only keep the important files.

You'll wipe out necessary boot files when you format your primary partition (repairable, but if you don't know how to do it beforehand you won't be able to boot to XP on the partition you create).

Make your partition, copy your stuff over and then format and reinstall to the same partition again (C:\). Just keep the partition you create (D:\) as storage for just this type of deal.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
