Im hoping you can help me. About a month ago we were having problems with our main driver C:/ so we formatted it and reinstalled windows. well now our slave driver D:/ is having problems ( it is 5 yrs old). we have backed up all of D:/ but we want to reformat it and dont know how. We went to computer management and tried to format D:/ from there but it wouldnt work. is there any way to format from startup. If someone could please let me know what to do and how to format D:/. we dont care about losing info on D:/ as we already backed it up, but we dont want to reinstall windows xp or lose anything on C:/. please let me know. Thanks!
