Data error cyclic redundancy

There are several situations that might have caused a damaged to the driver.

DATA ERROR CYCLIC REDUNDANCY might have been caused by a Virus attack. And in those cases, you will provably end up buying a new hard drive.
How would I know that? Well, just check your memory and remember if you had been doing some Internet search/chat/downloading some stuff/visiting unknown sites, etc., prior to the damage.
It ussually happens when you are using Chat programs, in which you may have received a file or a link to visit to

(most likely the virus made an unrecoverable damage on the main section of the drive, the MBR - Master Boot Record)

How can i make my wd 160 gb 4 partions

well tbh it shouldnt really metter what operating system you are on, coz most of them are almost the same and they all do the same job how ever if you have ever installed any hdd of any kind then ul know that most hdds are partitioned. firstly you need to plug in your hdd and the restart your computer and put in the xp or vista operating system and boot from disk when it says press any key to boot press any key and it will take you throught the steps on how to format or make another partition and you will have a set of hdds to chose from, one being your C drive and the other being your exturnal drive. when u install a operating system it will give you the choice if you want to make another partition and then you just choose the size that you want it to be note that the size will come up as KB and not MB so it will be something like 160000 and then you wanna make 4 partitons so say you want 40GB for each one you should look at taken it down to 120000 and then 80000 and then 400000 you can do this as many times as you like but if this seems to hard or complex then there is another way im not 100% sure if its free but its paragon partition manager witch is a program that you just install and start it up and with your hdd pluged in it will show you all the hdds on your computer and you just select the hdd you want to partiton and then chose the size of the partition but yet again you can you can do this as many times as you want. if you are still having problems just send me a email and il get back to you. my addy is

Hard drive Problem

as long as your primary drive is protected with a virus software dont worry about it. Unplug your cd rom ribbon cable and interface the other infected drive to ide1 or ide 0 whichever way dont try to master slave them. Let windows see the other drive as another drive, then the software should handle the infection.

Pending on the infection you've got the partitions may or may not matter, your better off with a solid parition, less seek times to the data anyway.
