    First, what do you mean when you say that the C: drive is on your second hard drive. What happened to the first hard drive?

    Do a virus check.

    Sorry I didnt explain it very well.What I meant was that My first Hard Drive being the C:Drive has the Operation system on (XP) and my Second Drive contains the split which are named 157gb and 26gb relating to the size of the partions for the second Drive.So in theory I have 3 different Drives but realy on 2 Hard Drives.
