If it is a Boot Drive that you want to reformat. You an use Clonzella which is free from here

http://clonezilla.org/download/sourceforge/

If it's a Slave Drive all that is required is to copy the files with something like Cut & Paste or Drag and Drop both of which are available in XP.

However you need to be aware that program Files have dependences on the Boot Drive and if you delete the Boot Drive those programs will not work till you reinstall them. Also if this has IDE/PATA Drives in it you should stick with that drive type particularly on the Boot Drives some older M'Boards require SATA Drivers to be loaded before you can install the OS to a SATA Type Drive.
