Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

OS was detected on Drive D instead of Drive C

\015 I was confused when i tried to reformat my laptop coz during the check up of previously installed OS it is detected in Drive D and not in Drive C which is odd. Before i tried to reformat my laptop I checked that it was on Drive C which is usually be. But now during the installation of the OS and when it checks previously installed OS. I don't want to proceed for i got files in the other partition and its very important. What should I do?\015

Dear Sir,
\015\012Before formatting the drive once again ensure that your OS in which drive.If it is in D Drive backup the your important files from D to C,E or F. If it is in C backup files from c to other drive.At the time of installation if it is showing previous version is in D drive dont go for format first backup the files from D to other drive then go for format during installation.If you want OS on other than D drive give other Drive as a destination for Windows installation...like c, f, g,.but it causes MultiOS on your laptop (one is older (D)+another Fresh(X) So it shows multi boot screen at the booting process,& you have to select which OS to start.
\015\012I think it solves your confusion
\015\012good luck
Dont worry at all. What you do is that while installing a new instance of Windows, select drive c it self. But do not format C:\\. Windows will autamatically create a Windows\\ directory and install the OS there without touching you othe folders on C:\\ or D:\\. If you already have C:\\Windows\\ directory from previous installation then you must install in some other directory, eg, Win or XP or WinXP. Whatever. This is to keep your data in my documents safe. Should you have some there. Any probs, come back to me, as I am online 24 hrs on my mobile and email is always on on the mobile.
