My hard drive capacity is 250 gb it is in a sigle local disk c: i want to make partion. what can i do to make partion ????


hi; you can try partition softwares, many software are avalailable in the internet.
search and download software with a free full trial. but i recommend
paragon partition manager.
its more stable and your data is safe when you partition your hard drive
or if you want to reformat your hard disk you can partition it by windows 7 and windows xp installer
if you read the intallation procedure theres an option of creating partitions
if somethings not clear just comment and i give some answer.
thanks....

I've replaced the hard drive with a 160gb drive but windows xp pro installer says it's only 131070 MB. On another computer it says it's 152625 MB. Do I need to update the BIOS?


no, when u install a partition on a hdd it will not show when u scan for disk size from windows as the partitions are seperated to keep it safe from many common issues. it looks like you may have installed windows again once it was in the new computer or just allocated additional space to the partition......dont worry, if your hdd gets full, windows will suggest to automatically slim down the partition for you




good luck and pls rate this post!!!!!! :D

Low memory. C-drive full, but D-drive, which is of equal capacity, is empty.


I have been here too. You physically have one hard drive and the C: partition is full. I used a program called partition magic that will allow you to repartition your hard drive without erasing anything you currently have installed. It is a really cool program, it just takes a while to do the procedure. You can Google several ones, but I suggest the one from Paragon.

I hope that I have provided the correct information that will assist you in the resolution of this issue. If you have any questions, please post back with a comment to this thread.

I have a Seagate 60 Gb drive which I have connected to two machines running xppro sp3. On each machine it shows as 31Gb. I go into DiskManagaement and delete the only partition (no unallotted space) and go...


surely this is a firmware problem that seagate usually has,sometimes the drive cannot be detcted by the pc or even bios,and sometimes the drive detcted by the pc as 0GB or less capacity,you should find a tool such as HD Doctor for Seagate to repair it.Or you can go 2 a DR company to rewrite the firmware.

Upgrading hdd in hp ze4805us to 250GB WD -- Won't Boot


since your bios says theirs a limit to HDD capacity you may want to try making the 250GB disk into 2 smaller partitions. Then extract your OS image to the first partition.

I HAVE A MAXTOR DIAMOND MAX PLUS 9 60GB ATA/133 HDD. I HAVE LOST HALF OF MY DRIVE CAPACITY. dANI115@COX.NET


try using a partitioning utility like gparted, pmagic, partition magic etc. this will tell you whether your drive is full, partitioned, how much is used and if the partition takes up the full disk. also, try doing scandisk on it to see if there are errors and to get the errors fixed

Hi,

To fix/restore to full capacity, you may need to delete the existing partition and re-partition then reformat again.

Most old computers have limitations on the CMOS/BIOS as to how big the capacity of the HD that it can recognize.  Windows however would recognize big HD size and therefore can partition, format and check.

Alternately, a third party disk utility program may be used such as Partition Magic.

Hope this be of some use/help. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Not able to load any os


Here's a fdisk utility for you to use: http://www.shareup.com/Super_Fdisk-download-18631.html That will help partition and activate drives. If you don't know how to partition a drive, then this link will help explain, in tech detail, what you are doing: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q221829/ If you want more of a layman's explanation, then goto this link: http://members.aol.com/_ht_a/weendoggy/index.htm As the person there went into detail as to what you are doing from what I think is a not-as-technical explanation as most other sites. Fdisk wipes your hard drive clear of anything when you run it, it then partitions the drives and activates the partitions so that a operating system can be installed on it. With your RAM, why did you even try to install Vista? Vista needs at least 1G of RAM for optimal performance, not to mention a good graphics card, and just overall new hardware.
