My wife's PC died last night. Could not mount or read the hard drive at all. I took the drive and put it in my G4/400. It mounted with no problems. What I want to do is backup what is on the drive and then reformat the drive on my Mac. I understand that Superduper is unable to back up a Fat32 formatted drive. In light of this, what are my options?

I look forward to what is the best way to proceed. The drive has two partitions. One contains 7GB of data and the other 8GB.

Sorry, rmcellig, I just don't know -- it's a PC drive, and you should use PC tools to deal with it, on a PC...

Thanks anyway. I managed to resolve my problem. I just thought it was kind of neat that I could mount the drive on my Mac.

Yeah, FAT32 works on the Mac... but doing full manipulation with the Mac is probably not the right thing to do to a Windows boot volume. Glad you got it fixed up, though.
