I am gonna ask probably a really stupid question. I believe my hard drive went kaput. So I am going to buy a new hard drive. After I install XP,drivers and programs onto it, I was wondering if I could take the hard drive I think went kaput and make it a slave to the new hard drive to check to see if there is anything on it to save? Mind you the hard drive is making grinding noises so should I even attempt to do this? LOL

Hi,

You certainly can slave it in your computer and no reason you should not. It won't harm a thing and you might be able to get your old data back again by doing this.
