Hello I hope someone can help. Using XP Pro on a reasonably decent machine. Have three internal hard drives Seagate 500gb, Maxtor 320gb both SATA. Also a Seagate 160 ATA but this does not show nor can I access it even though it is connected properly. I would like to use this as a backup drive Acronis being the software. Also have 1T external HDD usb but that does not show either in my computer.

robinofloxley. "I am sure your HDD will not fail in the next few days" Wrong on this occasion. At least I know now, luckily as I gave up trying to back up with Acronis to the external drive I cloned the C drive to the D yesterday so back in action. C would not even spin up today. Many thanks anyway to all for your advice, just not the sort of thing I need on Xmas eve when everyone wants to use the thing, sorted anyway have a good one.

Partition Wizard was a good freebie, sorted the problem with External drive not being seen and a useful bit of kit, thanks.
