HOW TO SET ORIGINAL SIZE OF HDD SEGATE BARRACUDA ST380011A THAT I WAS SET TO LIMITED SIZE I.E. 32GB NOW I WANT SET IT TO 80GB WHICH IS ORIGINAL SIZE.


Purchase or download a partition manager program.
The only way you can easily manage or change your partition size is to get a third-party program.


Partition Magic Freeware is the most widely known partition manager software. http://www.filehoo.com/download/Partition-Magic-8,0.aspx You can also download freeware programs such as Cute Partition Manager. http://download.cnet.com/cute-partition-manager/3000-2094_4-10605516.html

Open or run the partition manager.
In Partition Magic you can open the program easily. In Cute Partition Manager you may have to create a boot disk and boot from it to run the program. Once the program is open, select the drive you want to manage.
Go to the menu and choose an action or right-click and choose "resize." There will be an action -menu that will let you choose something like "resize" or "change hard drive size."

Some programs will also let you right-click on the graphical expression of a drive and choose the action or drag the graph to change the size.

Pick a new size for the drive and decide what you want to do with the remaining space. The rest of the space should be partitioned or formatted to make use of it if the current partition is downsized.

Apply the changes by clicking "apply" or "OK." You will then have to reboot the computer for the changes to take effect. The program may automatically do this for you or it simply may direct you to do it.

4. Double-click Computer Management.

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.

How do i format large HDD into fat32..?? recently i purchase a new external HDD 250gb....now i want to format into fat32 ( i know fat32 is allowed only 32gb maximum hard drive), any other way......??


Please use NTFS file system so that you can format and access large hard drives also.

Please find the procedure below.
If you are using windows then

2. Click on Manage
3. In the computer management window click on disk management in the left side
4. In the right side you will see all the disks and storage devices in your computer, you will also see the new hard drive connected to your computer.
