Question about Toshiba Tecra A3 Notebook
My Toshiba Tecra A3 has been unusually slow and chose to format it and reinstall all the programmes (should i say office?). After inserting my original Toshiba Product Recovery DVD, It takes me through all the stages upto the end but with no option for me to specify if i want to partition my hard disk. I've done it twice and at the end I have one drive (c) with all the 60 GB. Before, i had two drive c and D. Kindly advise me on how to get these back because am otherwise stranded. Thank you.
Windows can ONLY partition a hard drive BEFORE the actual OS installation begins; sorry to say, if you want to partition the system without using third-party software (such as Partition Magic), you'll need to wipe the drive and begin the installation AGAIN... Boot from the DVD, and look for an option to partition the drive, which must occur BEFORE the drive is formatted. IOW, partitioning can ONLY be done (without third-party software) BEFORE the drive is formatted; if you don't see an option to partition the drive BEFORE the system is ready to format the drive, I would suggest that you contact Toshiba directly... You didn't mention which country you bought the laptop from, and I couldn't find a Toshiba website for Uganda, so use this link: http://www.toshiba-europe.com That should provide a good starting point for finding the information you need; I don't have access to a Tecra Recovery DVD, so I can't provide any more specific information for you. Best of luck...
