Help pls! hard disks easily swapable? (ot)
Jun 21, 2005

Hi, and help!

Last night I tuned my computer on and Windows just wouldn't start. I tried everything (believe me) including windows recovery console but basically my main hard disk with program files/windows on it has given up the ghost I think. Its about 5 years old. The file table thingy file is corrupt/missing, even after copying form a winXP CD.

Anyway, luckily I have all my photos and other documents on a separate newer internal Hard Drive. Question for the experts - can I just take that hard drive physically out and plug it into another computer and expect all my files to still be there?

If I buy a new PC and just plug my old hard drive of photos/documents in in most normal circumstances will they all still be there? (obviouly another drive with windows on it will have to be present...)

Thanks in advance,

Jo
