    Hi all,

    im tempted to get this HDAdvance 2.x and was wondering... if i have a swapmagic & fliptop & network adaptor can i use a backup of HDAdvance? so i can test it with one or 2 old Hard Drives i have (samsung 40 gig or IBM 15 gig)

    also, what format should the HDs be? at the mo mine are either NTFS or FAT32 (cant remember which, im at work!) i assume they will need to be FDisk'd - but to what?

    cos otherwise i am tempted at the package on the hdadvance webbie

    thx all

    neither the fat32 or ntfs will work. Ps2 uses a special file system which the hdadvance formats your hdd to. I don't see why swap magic wouldn't work on a backup of hdadvance.
