Hi,
What is the best / easiest way to copy loads of documents etc from a windows
95 hard drive to a newly built pc,with a windows xp hard drive installed ?
(The windows 95 drive is not fitted to a pc )

Install the old drive as Secondary Master (as most hard drives seem to
be jumpered as master), highlight documents on source folder and drag
them to destination folder (answer COPY and not MOVE).
