How to swicth off primary drive when usign HardDrive Mechanic
Posted on 2004-08-02
I have a Dell desktop, to which I have attached via firewire a Lacie Big Disk; the Lacie drive is listed, but says 'I/O error' when I try to look at it in Explorer. Anwyay, I downloaded Hard Drive Mechanic and, having copied the HDM files onto a floppy and having created a boot disk, I then noticed in the instructions that HDM would access or scan the so-called primary drive. I haven't tried it yet, but if HDM does this, how can i 'switch off' the primary drive so that I can get HDM to look at the Lacie external drive?
