    Repair Windows XP

    I have Windows XP install files on my Drive D. Is there a way to reinstall XP from here without reformatting and losing all my info and settings?
    Thanks

    You can use the Windows transfer files and settings application.

    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/usin ... ber12.mspx

    This application will backup your files and settings which then can be restored after windows is reinstalled. Make sure to save the backup on the D: drive or an external drive.

    You will still wipe out the C drive but then you can restore your settings and files. You will need to re-install the other applications but some of those settings may also be restored.

    Thanks, I'll remember that for future reference. I just got thru reinstalling XP and all my files that I did back up. I lost a few things but the important things are still there.
