be used as an external storage device. This was the only hard drive in the
laptop originally and was the primary boot drive. I upgraded the laptop
with a larger hard drive and want to use the old boot drive as a secondary
storage drive. I have left the old hard drive's file structure and file
system intact in case I want to place it back in the laptop as the primary
boot disk. I did this just in case the Ghost image restored to the new hard
drive proves to be buggy, that way I have a fall back. Before I plug the
drive into the usb port of the laptop, I just want to know if Windows XP
does anything to this hard drive's file system that would render it
unbootable should I decide to remove the drive from the enclosure and
install it back to the laptop as the primary boot drive.
Hope that makes sense. Any insight would be welcome.
