Hard Drive Problem

  1. This problem has been going on for a long time now, but i have just now got around to getting help with it.

    Basically my Hard Drive Disk is suppose to have aproximitly around 80GB, when i first got this computer it did in fact have 80GB. Since then i have formatted my Hard Drive numerous times, and now it seems i only have 57.2GB in total. The only thing that can come to mind that is wrong is theirs another Partition that i have that contains the extra 20GB or so.

    Anyone know how i can get the extra 20GB that my Hard Drive is suppose to have?

    To partition your hard drive again i reccomend either partition magic or the ever usefull fdisk utility built in to windows. google for info! I believe (though i aint used it in a while ) that partition magic can re partition without destroying your existing setup. good luck!

    My last post was my younger brothers idea of a joke when i went to make a cup of tea!

    Partition magic can repartition without losing your data and hopefully give you your 20 gs back.
