    Surprised/Amazed

    I was just wondering if this is possible at all.

    I have 2 hard drives one 80Gb and one 120Gb, at the moment I have XP installed on the 120 but I have been having issues and want to reinstall. The only snag is I am not going to be able to find enough space for the stuff thats on the HD with the original windows installation.

    Can I swap them over and install XP on the 80 and then safely delete it from the other one afterwards?

    yes you can reinstall to the 80gb just fine. Just make sure to set it up as the master drive and you should take out the 120gb during the install to avoid confusion.

    you can just format or delete the windows, program files, and documents and settings folders (assuming there is nothing there you need).
