Yes, you can move files along as the drive is recognized in windows.
You CANNOT move programs or the operating system. Move any files you want to keep, boot with a boot floppy, at the a prompt type format c: You will lose everything on C. Reinstall the os.

Good Luck

You need to fdisk and format. You can make that drive one large Extended Dos Partition and then divide it into one or more logical partitions. Reboot. Format. It will be ready to hold Data.
