I have windows XP machine Laptop Sony Vaio 2Ghz 200 Gig hard drive that needs a reformat and re-install. However we have some essential server software that needs to keep running for half the day to alllow access to resources from outside our company. Therefore what we have come up with this idea and would be interested to see if anyone can see any problems or issues that may come up:
Currently the hard drive has 2 particition on it one is both 100 gig each. Currently all the programs are on the C:/ partition and a backup copy of the op system files (unistalled) are on the D:/ drive. What I would like to do is use partition magic to create a new partition aE: nd on this new partition install a fresh install of the same operating system that we are using on the C drive we will do this during the time that the PC is not being accesses externally. Then swap over from the old currupted op system that needs a reformat to the fresh install on E:/ then format C:/ and then change the drive letter of E: to C: finally remove the E. partition.
Can anyone see any issues with doing this? or is there a better way to do it? basically what we want to do is be able to reinstall the programs on e:/ until all the essential programs are back - this could take several days to do and we therefore want to ensure the external contractors still have access to the server on our old op system whilst the reinstall is occuring.
