I have downloaded Friendtech.Media-Center.v1.0-RC0

What I want to do is install this on my F drive WITHOUT formatting it because I have my music, photos, movies, games, and other important stuff. Is this possible?

Thanx for the help.

You only need to format f:\ if its unformatted - you wouldnt be able to use an unformatted f:\ drive.

What I should have stated is....
Will it format the F drive to a non-FATX filesytem, or will it install a loopback filesytem.

I dont get it

If you have files on your F:\ it must be formatted

If you have no files on your F;\ then you wont lose anything from formatting

and no worries im bored right now anyways

To get this clarified I have a 80 GB HDD.
I have a F drive that holds my music, games photos, etc.
That F drive is a regular xbox FATX filesystem.

Now, I cannot install Friendtech natively on my F drive because that will wipe my F drive completely.
The only way I will install it, is if it installs a loopback fs on my F drive. That way it will not interfere with the files (about 20GB worth) that already exists on the F drive.

Now, I know I have in the past had Gentoox Home on a loopback fs on the F drive. Is that possible with the
Friendtech?
