I am doing to major Upgrade for my fathers PC, All we are keeping are the DVD and CDRW drives and an Old HD.
We have a new HD and I am going to install win 2k on it as I think it more stable than win ME that is on the current machine.
He wants to keep the old HD and transfer the info from one to the other. Then formatt. He has backed some things up.
I would rather formatt the drive and put it in "fresh" to the new machine, as it has been used for years (Win 98, then upgrade to Win ME) and has accumulated years of Junk and probabbly viruses that the Scanner has picked up.
Should I push this point and tell him the formatt and forget once he has backed up or am I just being over precautious?
