Why do you feel you would lose data by rebooting? Did you by chance mean rebuilding?

i dont know what 'rebuilding' is but ive rebooted before and i have lost some of my work, and i wouldnt like that to happen again since i need most of what i have.

are you rebooting

by PurpleSkys In reply to umm...

while in the middle of something and not saving it before you reboot? or is the machine rebooting itself? as a rule, one does not loose things just from rebooting a system...

rebooting

hi
're-booting' just means turning the machine off and back on again - if you are losing data every time you turn the machine off you have a real problem....
what do you actually want to do?
cheers

If you are meaning re-installing W98SE - then NO ...

When you re-install you will wipe the existing image, replacing it with the new one.

However, if you have partitioned your hard drive, you could move all the data you wish to retain into the secondary partition, making sure you only format the primary partition and re-install into that primary partition.

If you don't have a partitioned hard drive then I'm afraid the only course of action would be to save your data out onto floppies (if you have a floppy drive), a CD, or a USB thumb drive.

That way you can put your 'bookmarks and fonts and what not' back into your new freshly-installed Windows 98 SE system.
