Deleting a Windows install off of a Slave HDD
ok here's the deal. i installed a Slipstream of XP SP2 on my computer. and it seems as tho it installed by default onto my Slave Drive. before the install of XP i used the Slave HDD as a storage drive. meaning i only stored files and data and such on the drive. never installed anything to it.
i want to know how i can delete this windows install without harming my data i have on there. in the windows XP setup util after boot. i can delete the partition but won't that delete my files as well?
i suppose i could copy over my sensitive data and wipe the HDD clean then copy back over. but i would like to know how to kill the windows install without harming my files. as this seems a better task than to waste more time moving files back and forth and formating.
thank you for the help in advance.
