Job, install Windows Vista PC and transfer files from Windows 98. Easy? Not so!!!
Probem, getting files off of the old Windows 98 box. Firstly, I use a USB hard drive. After spending ages tracking down the drivers to make it work on the Windows 98 PC, I irst formateed the drive.
I then transferred the first batch of files I needed from the Windows 98 Pc to the USB drive.
Actually took ages but completed it. Then plugged the drive into the new Vista PC.
It still sees the files that were there before I formated it on the Windows 98 (full format - NOT quick) PC.
I cannot see any of the files I took AGES transferring!!
Can anyone please help. I have another Vista questy to follow about Vista mail importing from Outlook Express on the Win 98 PC (I copied over a DBX file but it does not seem to import it) but main thing for now is how I read the fat 32 info on the USB hard drive.
Note I took the USB home and tried it on my Windows XP hard drive and the same thing, it can only see the files BEFORE I formatted it on Win 98.
