Question about Western Digital (WD3200JS) 320 GB Hard Drive
How can I partition the c drive to take advantage of all available space?
I own a sony vaio running windows xp. We loaded the lifeguard software that came with this wd3200JBRTL drive and still are not able to partition more than 20 gigs for the c drive. There is 200 plus gigs on the d drive but we cant expand c drive to access it.
3rd party software like Partition Magic might do it, it's good but not free. However, if you google "best partition software" you might get some good free alternatives. In the worst case a fresh windows installation required. No, that's the second worst case, i think it doesn't aply but in the very worst case you need to wipe your HD totally clean with Boot and Nuke, at least not with the windows, free=ing some space the factory set's aside for recovery purposes. However, this method is drastically, only aply when 100% sure, plus the reserved space can never be that much. A partition tool MIGHT do the job but it sounds like it has some deeper root of the problem. Try google it and hope some1 recognize it (and probably had the same problem or a big brain). Sry i couln't help you more.
