Question about Samsung SpinPoint SP6003H (SP-6003H) 60 GB Hard Drive
Dears, I had an old motherboard which allowed only 32GB to my HD SP. I have changed it for a new one, but despite the fact that the Bios recognizes now that the Samsung HD has a capacity of 60GB, there are still 25023 Mo which are not allowed and I don't know how to recover it. How can i get that space back? Thks in advance Emile EDINGUELE H
Older motherboards without large disk support only handle a partition size that it can manage. Depending on the motherboard, it either partitioned the drive and used a 32gb portion, or it just disreguards the span after the 32gb point. If the former is the case, you may have to repartition the drive. There are some programs that allow you to do whis without reinstalling your OS, but they have a risk of corrupting data. If you have the ability to backup all your computers information and reformat/reinstall your OS, things should be back in order. Warning: Make sure you educate yourself on the process before you set out on this job. You will want to backup any information on the drive as well as make sure you have any drivers you may need before you begin. (if you are using windows XP, I suggest you read up on this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313348 ) If you want to attempt a repartition without reinstalling your operating system, you may want to try Partition Magic, Drive Image, Norton Ghost, or Partition Logic. (Some are free, some are not. A quick search will help you find their websites for more info.)
