    Ok so i downloaded a rather large file (Oblivion) (4.18gb) and basically what it was is 31 .rar file (all entitled rld-tes4), then quite a few more SFV files that are called rld-tes4.r31, rld-tes4.r32. rld-tes4.r33......all the way to rld-tes4.r88 and one rld-tes4.sfv

    I also downloaded the iso i need to mount as my CD drive with Daemon tools. I'm pretty sure i have that part working correctly

    Pretty much at a loss at what to do with all of these files in the 4.18gb file. I tried extracting the first .rar and got this error message --

    For starters, what is your harddrive formatted to, FAT32 or NTFS? If you don't know how to check right click the drive in my computer (or hover) and go to properties. It shoulod tell you there.

    From what I understand, SFV is just a checksum value to make sure you got a good download of all files. If you have never done this before don't worry about it - everything is probably OK, and if not re-DL. Sounds like ytou did it right, find the first .rar file and extract it. It should procede from there. IIRC find the .r01 or if there is a regular .rar to use, use that.

    Now is probably not the time, but doesn't the conversion tool allow you to keep your data?

    *shrugs* I don't know everything, what I was able to identify is that your HD was in the wrong format, and the one way I knew how to change that was reformatting and choosing the format from the start. It's not my fault you didn't ask for a 2nd opinion, or bother to burn your mp3s to disc before formatting etc.

    Damn Aragorn that sucks man. For the future.... you need to use NTFS to have any file system security.

    Back when I installed my second drive I still only had XP pre-SP1 and have a 200GB HDD. I formatted it in FAT32 to help with data recovery incase of failure, since at the time I knew nothing of Win PE, and the linux tools I had always mentioned the possibility of messing up an ntfs drive. Long story short, can I convert my secondary drive to ntfs? if so, how?

    Yeah you can convert it. Also I have had no problems at all mounting/writing/reading NTFS from multiple linux distros. NOrmally to root NTFS I use Trinux with the ntfs kernel mod. Just boot trinux and mount the file system. Works great on NT and 2k, have not needed to root an xp filesystem but any differences will be outlined on some mssg board somewhere.
