It was a windows vista. Not all steps are finished as i just installed windows so far. Installing drivers and updates are still to be done. The d: drive was basically a backup drive but i never really used this as my backups and images are put in the portable hard drive. Now its the partitions i need to be certain with. Do I need to recreate another partition to create a d drive? Do I need to rename these partitions? The one is now labelled unallocated. Logged in its a c drive while the d drive is my cd/dvd drive.
And what is the best option in dban to use on my external hard drive. I used autonuke for my internal hard drive.
P.S. I thought i should also mention that in the steps you gave me, i couldnt pull off step 4: Format the drive using a low level format. The option was there but greyed out and couldnt click. Presumably because there was no file on it?
