    Hey guys,

    I've been out of backup loading for a while, but when I was, I used to use discs. So I'm quite inexperienced with USB Loaders. I have an "external" hard drive (my old laptop 2.5" inside of an enclosure) that I want to use as a hard drive to load. I have all my old computer data on there, so I don't want to reformat. Right now, it has 2 NTFS partitions. I have read that you can load from NTFS partitions using certain USB loaders, but you need some cIOS222 and some other stuff. Now I'm not quite sure how to do all of this, can someone point me in the right direction or explain?

    After my recent experiences i would reformat it to one whole fat32 partition if you can.
    just backup all your stuff to another disk and you can put it back on when finished,
    obviously files over 4GB wont be supported.

    NTFS just isnt very stable.
