Re: Using portable drive on windows XP
I wonder if there is something wrong with your XP in some way. Do you have anything else to test such as with another external drive or with a thumb drive?
If the problem is getting the document from your XP machine somewhere else, you could make it an e-mail attachment or use Dropbox or a file transfer service to get it to your other machine if that is your goal. You shouldn’t have to use any external drive.
It’s not that easy. No matter what I do it still asks to be formatted.

Just say no and use the drive anyway?
I decided to try using my portable drive on windows XP as I have MS Word on that computer and I don’t have MS Word on Windows 10. However, the XP machine keeps asking if I want to format disk E, which I don’t want to as I have not had to format it on my other computers. So is there any way that I can use the portable drive on XP without formatting it? Thank you for any help.
