Unfortunately this is a little like closing the gate after the horse has bolted. as there is a possibility that the files you copy onto the drive may be infected with the virus. however, It is usuall that External drives are not configured for use (as the application for the drive's use is varied) it is up to the user to partition and format the drive. if you are using win XP it sh a case of connecting the drive (the hardware should be detected) install drivers if neccesary. Then the Disk needs to be prepared, Right Click "MY Computer" and select MANAGE. This should take you to a management window. Select "Disk Management" Under "Storage" from the "tree" on the left of the window. You should now see on the top right a list of named partitions, and below you should see the partition maps of the drives connected to the system. your 100 GB disk should be shown here, as an unformatted unpartitioned disk, once this disk is selected you can partition it any way you like however most choose a single partition, once the disk is partitioned you need to format the partition, FAT32 is the most portable. once this is done the disk should now have a Drive letter, This can be changed if required. yould now be able to access the disk :) `
