I had a PC failure. It had two hard drives. Of course, the main hard drive (C:)  and I installed a second IDE hard drive and used it for backup (thats all). I used the XP backup utility to save my main drive info. So, I now have another PC with XP and I am trying to access my backup drive to restore some pix, music, etc. The backup drive shows up in bios and device manager. In disk manager it shows up as "dynamic foreign". It isn't assigned to any drive letter. And, of course, I can't access it through XP. Any suggestions ?

Thanks for the info. Looks like I could be out of luck if I am using XP Home edition.
