About Harddisk Problem

I have a harddisk of Samsung with 40GB of memory space. I have found some problem on it. I formate the harddisk with the help of Disk manager and create four drives on it. When i am going to install the operating system, I found that My C dirive have some problem then I prefer to install the operating system on d drive. My d drive did not show any problem but the operating system does not get installed. When I am going to contact my vendor he told me that the boot sector of your harddisk has been damaged and it is recovered by NDD software. I want to know about the NDD software and from where I can download it.

Hi,

To my knowledge, NDD stands for Norton Disk Doctor and is part of the Norton System Utilities marketed by Symantec. This, I believe, is an old product and has been replaced by Norton System Works.

In effect the function of the NDD is similar to Scandisk of Windows.

Alternately, Samsung/TriGem has their own set of Utilities, one of which is Disk Manager.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Hello Kevin Shaggy...

Let me see if I can help you out a bit...
Adding a 160gb to a 40gb does give you 200gb. BUT!!! you will loose a little bit on each one after formatting the harddrive. The new drive will wind up being about 157 or 159gb give or take a little.
ANY harddrive partition, whether it is a c:, d:, etc...you DO have to format EACH drive letter.
If you partition your 160gb harddrive into 2 parts, (2) 80gb drives, then they would get two drive letters and both of them get formatted.
IF the 40gb drive is C: then the new 160gb partitioned in half would be D: & E:.
CDROM Drive would be F: and so on....
Floppy Drives, CDrom Drives, DVD Drives, you do not have to format like a hard drive...

If you add a 1gb stick of memory to your existing 256mb stick of memory then you WOULD have 1gb + 256mb. If you remove the 256mb and just add 1gb, then you would just have 1gb.

Just continue in formatting the hard drive because this can be cause by some malware that's why your hard drive is just showing that size and after you format it everything will be clean, the other reason why the hard drive is just shwoing that small size even though its a big size there's a possibility of bad sector on the hard drive so don't use the quick format when you reformat the drive so the bad sector will be fix also...
