Partician a hard drive


Hard drive volumes are can be partitioned to adjust s. The hard drive space that's available after device installation depends on two factors; the actual manufactured of the hard drive, and the number and of the partitions created on the hard drive. Partitioning a hard drive splits the total manufactured space into sections, each listed as a separate device by your computer's operating system. It's used primarily as a method of turning larger hard drives into more manageable sections of storage. There are times when the chosen partition is no longer adequate to your needs. You can quickly change the partition of the drive using the administrative tools of your operating system when this occurs. The data will remain intact and the newly d partitions are instantly available for use.
Press the "Start" button located on the taskbar on the bottom of the Windows desktop. Select the "Control Panel" from the Start menu to open the Control Panel window. Type "administrative tools" into the search box of the Control Panel window. Click on the Administrative Tools link revealed in the Control Panel window to open the Administrative Tools window. Double-click on the "Computer Management" option listed among the Administrative Tools in the rightmost panel of the Administrative Tools window. Select "Disk Management" in the Storage subcategory listed in the left panel of the window. A display will appear listing all of the hard drives contained in your system and hard drive information, including the s of the current partitions contained on the drives as well as the available space of the drives. Right-click on the drive partition you wish to change in the lower panel of the window. ''Choose a option, either "Extend Volume" or "Shrink Volume." Use "Extend Volume" to enlarge the of the partition. There is a limit to the maximum of the partition, based on the amount of free space contained on the drive. Select "Shrink Volume" to shrink the of a partition. Select the new partition and then select the "Enlarge" or "Shrink" button to complete the resizing process. If you've already allocated all of your hard drive space to multiple partitions, you will have to shrink one partition on the drive in order to create free space for enlarging another partition. The newly d volume is immediately ready for use. Rather doing all of this although it could be a useful learning exercise you could use a third party software program

Windows 7 does not recognized it


Your external hard drive likely has no partitions so Windows has no drive to mount. Follow these steps to create and format a partition for your external hard drive.

1. Press Win+R to open the Run command.
2. Type "Control" into the dialog box.
3. Double-click Administrative Tools.
4. Double-click Computer Management.
5. Select Disk Management under Storage.
6. Find the 250 GB External Hard drive in the right pane.
7. Right click on the drive and select "Create new partition".
8. After the partition is created you will need to format the partition.
9. Format the partition as NTFS unless you plan on booting off the hard drive, in which case format the partition as FAT32. You can also create multiple partitions if you want.
10. Enter My Computer and you will now see your external hdd.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

How to make partation in new hard disc using window xp


Hello sir and Windows user, setting up Windows on your hard drive is easy, but there is a better way to setup Windows so you will never have problems later, like back up and searching for flash drives (especially XP users), So before you start setting up Windows, I suggest you partition your hard drive to 2 (or 3) partition, one for the system (usually this is drive C:), one for your data (this is drive D:). Partitioning simply divides your hard drive to several sections, the main advantage is in case your windows system goes bad, or get infected by a virus, you can easily back up your important documents, simply copy all your important files to drive D: (drive D: is not erased if you setup Windows on drive C:)

f08f0b4.gif

for example:
To create a partition, on an XP setup, using a 160GB hard drive, divide your 160GB Hard Drive to 2, Press C to create a partition see picture. 80GB for windows system files and 80GB for data files.

Never setup the entire Windows on drive C: alone. create 2 partition. So before you choose where to setup Windows, there is an option to create another partition, input how much storage space you need for the partition in our example 80GB on a 160 GB drive. then proceed to setup Windows on drive C:. (at this point there are two drives, C: and D:)

On Windows Vista, the backup is automatic, but then again, its much wiser to partition your hard drive.

Can not format my samsung hard drive with DOS command and Disk Genius and lost 49 GB capacity. What can I do?


You may have the hard drive partitioned into two or more partitions.
Delete all the partitions and create a single partition and then format this single partition on the hard drive.
