Wow - it worked

The external USB housing arrived today so I've finally been able to get my files off the old 40gb hard disk, then put it in the Windows 98 box and convert it to Fat 32 so Windows 98 can actually read it. It turns out that Seagate have a nice HD management program on their site so it was pretty painless.

So I now have 150gb in my XP box and 60gb in the Windows 98 box, which ought to be ample for my immediate needs, and I've bunged the left-over drive from the 98 box into the external casing - not quite sure what I need an external 6gb USB drive for, since my PCs and laptop are all networked and have DVD writers, but I'm sure I'll think of something. Or upgrade it if I get a bigger drive for one of the PCs. Ought to be useful for recovery jobs if nothing else. The scary thing is that it holds more data than the first dozen or so hard disks I've owned combined, and I'm still thinking of it as too small to be useful...
