I am now running under win 98. I want to upgrade to Win 2000 Profesional.
My computer has two HD. THe first one has two partitions (lets name them C and D). The second one has only one(lets name it E). Now, I backuped all my important data on the second drive (E).
Before upgrading, I want to make sure that when I will say I want to install Windows on the first drive (first partition:C), and convert this drive to NTFS, that it will keep my data that is stored on the second drive (E) in FAT... and that it will remain accessible!
Then, after the installation would be completed, I plan to swith my data to my drive in NTFS (C), and convert the second drive(E) to NTFS. Does this make sense?
Of course, I would convert drive D at the same time.
Unfortunately, I don't have access to a CD burner, so I can't backup on CDs....
I want to make sure that I won't loose any data... Is it possible that it convert all my drives without asking?
Thank you for your help. I prefer to plan than to cry... :)
