How to deal with different multiple partitions on a large capacity hard drive


There are many people who wish that they have the maximum storage capacity available in their hard disk.

The more space you have these days, makes you urge for some more .
Therefore when your satisfaction was with a 250 GB hard drive , in some time you would feel a 500 GB hard disk is something which you require.

No wonder due to increase software technology and their huge you will need a large storage space.It's not surprising to see software in multiple GBs for e.g.a Adobe suite would take approx around 5 + Gbs of space depending on the applications you want.

Therefore the best way to manage your hard disk drive is as follows :-


1. Create as much partitions as you require , and don't be lazy about it. :- Many people as a result of excitement just want to go ahead with the windows installation or an operating system's installation , without considering the hard disk state, i.e. without actually partitioning the hard disk and then going ahead with the installation of the operating system.

However this attitude does not help when you have the only partition that you trusted is damaged , not everyone knows damage recovery and may end up believing that he has lost all valuable data and will reinstall the operating system after a full format.

2.
Separate the partitions for Operating systems and your personal data :- Even though you have options like my documents and my pictures in your root drive where the operating system has been installed , it's always better to keep your personal files in another partition besides the root drive , as you never know when the root drive would be affected by virus and your master boot record would be damaged , and then you would end up formatting your drive.

3.
Create partitions based on the sorting of your personal /official files :-

If you want to have multiple partitions have them on the basis of your work. For instance , it's always better to have a separate partition for your official work so that you can have a timely backup and don't mix it up with your personal files be it your home videos or pictures.

4.
Name them such that you can identify them easily :-

How many times has it happened that you are searching for something by opening up the different partitions that exist and then getting frustrated as a result ? You know the data is there, but you just don't know where. Therefore the solution to this problem would be to rename the partition itself in a way that when you want to search for some data , you know which partition you want to search for the data.

Hope this helps ..:)

I have tested several programs, but the program below, just really worked for...


Let's try to explain the question that grinds us all when in cams about the hard disk. Can we actually repair a bad block? Before of the answer you must find some information about what is a hard disk, how does it work, what are bad blocks. After that you must identify them because you will need the exact location of the affected sectors. After you have done that you must run a few steps:
- before you try to resolve the problem with the bad sector you must extract the data that was written to that block. To do this you must run a Recovery program that you can find freeware on the net.
- bad sectors are unreadable parts on your hard disk but the nature of them must not be always physically and that part of the platens to be destroyed. The bad sectors can be simulated by some programs. This means that some programs installed on your computer can interrupt the reading process on to another segment of the platens. That is in the most happier cases but the chances that the bad sectors are cause by this is less then 10 percent. In this case is difficult to resolve the problem because even the Scandisk or other identification programs used to discover bad blocks will give a rapport that nothing is wrong with your hard disk. The best way is to uninstall the latest programs applied to the computer.
- lets supposed that you have a 20 gigabits partition on your hard disk that has bad blocks. After the identification program it will indicate you where are the blocks situated on the partition. So this way you can isolate them in to another partition that you must never use again. Another scenario can be created and the bad sectors can be at the beginning of the partition in the middle of it and at the end of the partition. Know it's a little bit tricky because you can't just go on and create three new partitions to eliminate the bad sectors from use. In this case most of the new hard disk has a spare space available just for this type of scenarios. You must access the CASH memory of the hard disk and indicates to the hard disk that instead of writing down on the effected blocks it must write to the spare blocks.
- another to restore the hard disk is to use the low level format option. Many of you think that low level format is a program. Wrong, the low level format option is set for any BIOS and can be easily use if you know some command line programming. The low level format can take to be complete a very long period of time but in the most cases we can obtain marvelous results. Actually the low level option takes every cluster of the hard disk and identifies them again (throw a thermal process) and writes down on the memory of the hard disk what sectors can be written and witch blocks are un-writable. This procedure is the best that can be because it will need no effort from your side to try and avoid the bad blocks that already exists and the hard disk itself know where the bad blocks are.
In conclusion the bad blocks can't be fixed. The problem is a permanent one and we can only try to use the hard disk until it is broken down for good. But if you are having financial problem this is a best way to keep going with your old hard disk.

What hard drive is used in wj-hd316a


The hard disk is divided into three partitions: "Normal Recording,"

"Event Recording," and "Copy." Image data is automatically

recorded to the appropriate partition according to the recording

mode. For the normal recording partition, the data is overwritten

when the capacity is full. The event recording partition prohibits

overwriting to protect data. Copy partition prepares data for

retrieval to external medium.

Hard Disk Partitioning Function* automatically

selects the partition to be recorded.

RAID5 distributes image data to multiple hard disks in the

extension unit. Upon hard disk breakdown, lost data can be

restored from other hard disks. When using one WJ-HD300A

Series unit, mirroring function is available for data backup.

There are several free data recovery softwares that can get data off of drives that Windows explorer won't touch. Check out: http://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-software.htm If you don't mind voiding the warranty, you CAN take it out of the enclosure and try connecting it to another computer, but I really think the encryption is going to prevent this.
The only other option would be to send the drive off to a data recovery specialist which is usually extremely effective, but can be very costly (starting around $400).

How i can format wyse x90l


You can not format the Windows Drive (referred to as windows partition) while the windows is running.
CAUTION: FORMATTING A PARTITION OR HARD DRIVE WILL RESULT IN ALL THE DATA BEING LOST.
But you can format any other drive or partition, to format a drive or partition other than the windows', open My computer right click on the drive icon and click format, press all the OKs and your drive will be formatted in a while.



To format whole hard drive, even the windows partition,
CAUTION: FORMATTING A DRIVE WILL RESULT IN LOOSING ALL THE DATA AND THE WINDOWS AS WELL.

Now back to business, to do a complete format you need a bootable cd, If you have your recovery disk or even a bootalble windows disk you can format everything.
Lets assume that you have a windows bootable cd, insert the disk while the laptop is starting (make sure that the computer boots up with the cd), let the setup load its files, then follow the instruction until you reach to the point when you can see your hard drives and its asking for formatting press F to format the drive which is highlighted.
Thats it.
Please feel free to ask me any further.

Why does the error code: 10-FC12-0017 appear when I run the system recovery on my toshiba satellite a135-s2356 laptop?


I had the same problem with a customers laptop. There hard drive died nothing related to that error then when i placed in the new hard drive the recovery disks gave me 10-FC12-0017. Everything I saw online said that means the hard drive is dead but it was brand new and I even tested it on another computer it worked fine. In order to fix the issue I had to find a Windows Vista CD, deleted all the partitions with the windows disk, created a new one and then installed. Worked fine, no problems.
