Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop
Hi everyone. thanks for taking the trouble to read this. I have a dell desktop and my secondary hard disk is failing. i have partitioned the hard disk into two but i already have a primary disk. the primary disk seems to work fine. but the secondary disk asks me to format it anytime i try to access any of the two partitions. i cant afford to format it because i have a lot of important data on it. thanks again for reading and i hope you can give me some help here. thanks.
Ok, If you want to Keep all the data AND be able to boot into that secondary Hard Disc, Then You Need toBoot into your primary Hard drive, Navigate to the Secondary Hard Drive from within Windows.................
then, back the data you want to save onto: DVD-Rs, CD-Rs, External Hard Disc, Flash Drive, etc..
And Then Delete the partitions and Reformat it.
If That doesn't fix your problems completely, then your Hard Drive has seen better days and needs to be replace. But I'd Try The Above First......at least this way, You won't lose your data!
