Hello all,
            I'm wondering if I can slave a Win98 OS Hard Drive to an NTFS XP OS Hard Drive and copy files from the WinXP Hard Drive to the Win98 Hard Drive for temp storage only.
 I want to save some files from the WinXP OS and return them after a re-format.

Thanks and regards,
                              bill

its possible , the only thing to remember is all their permission will be lost , as ntfs uses security and fat32 doesnt.

also please keep in mind to save it more than 1 type of back up , as i have had occaisons of curroptions and even
failed cdr disks , even after they verifed success . more than 1 backup will save you in the long run.

What effect will losing "permissions" have on this procedure??

Thanks,

If you're not on a network then permissions won't be an issue.  Sounds like your doing this just for a personal computer right?

I've heard of an issue in which Windows 98 does not recognize NTFS drives, so as long as you don't boot up in 98 then you should be fine.
