Formatting my pc without deleting my porn, is this possible


#1

I dont have enough space on my external hard drive to store my porn but I need to format my PC because it virus infested (its taken me 20minutes to type and post this message:mad:).

can I format everything else whilst keeping the porn vids somehow?

I can’t tell what’s funnier, your name, your post, or why you came here of all places to find out.:rofl:

Good god, man. Just go out and buy a new external for like 50 bucks, put the porn on it, and format. Or burn that shit to blank dvds as data discs. A format gets rid of EVERYTHING on c:.


#4

I’m broke as fuck… i thought there might be a way to save the porn…90gb worth of it (which is only 10% of the amount of porn i have in total).

fuck symantec anti virus, i had less viruses without it and avast seems to be just as fucked up.

this stupid virus deleted the install/uninstall option, it made norton anti virus delete itself (wtf), including everything in my control panel except the internet. Now i’ve got avast running non stop and its trying to delete whats left.

Unless there’s a way to format the areas of the hard drive around those files that I’ve yet to hear about, kiss that shit good bye in a format.

You could probably just re-install Windows over, which would delete the current Windows in the process. But have fun then re-installing all your programs.

reboot into safe mode without networking, if you can do this then go to “computer” and right click. go to manage. under storage go to disk Management. click your hard drive and then shrink volume srink as much space as your pron collection needs or as much space as you have available if you don’t have enough for all of it. then you will have unused space. click that and go to extend volume. use the full amount of space assign a drive letter and apply. You have just partitioned your hard drive. now back yo stuff.

try not to reformatt your backup drive. GL

You can do that? Shit. Thanks for that info.

“20 minutes to type & post this message” lol

90GB(that’s a hell of a spank bank)?! you must be going blind!

this disturbs me. i dont watch porn and my computer has been virus free for 2+ years.

…if any of your posts have to do with a “fightstick” ill really have to read with caution.


#11

i dont know fuck all about computers but since your on tech tak, i wanted your input, what do you prefer JLF or LS-32 ??, oh sorry my bad, you must definately go custom with your OWN little JOYstick!!!

PS dont tell me your fav game is super pocket fighter…

Sexperienced you can install an operating system, Over an operating system if you choose not to hit the format option just hit install and it will move the old windows folder to a folder called old.windows, Once you do this copy your porn to new windows then delete old.windows


#15

i tried that already and it didnt work, the virus fucked up my windows xp key code.


#16

Do tell how it fucked up your XP Key code, I don’t think you know how those work if you’re under the assumption that a virus would void your serial key.

Your only real option if you want to keep said data but re-install your operating system is to do exactly what cammy said, unless you want to invest in an external hard drive to backup said data.

Sanwa or Seimitsu?Happ or Il?Crown or Fanta? American parts or japanese parts, or even Korean parts?:clown:

Repartition your hard drive using Partition Magic or GParted (free). Copy teh pr0n from C to D. Format C and reinstall the OS.

The virus, Fucked up your XP serial key… Please tell me that’s not what you meant to say.

A virus can’t fuckup a ‘‘serial-key’’, Sounds like to me you’re just to lazy to do that way so you choose and excuse, Or your XP-CD, Is an illegal copy, Even then the ‘‘cd-key’’ should still work unless it’s an invalid key, or you mistyped it.
