Acer Aspire 5735, the C drive is full but the D drive is empty, can you change the partition so that more is given to the C drive?


Windows - You can't it is the active partition and contains the OS.

Use 3rd party software like Partition Magic. Be sure to backup first. This was not a safe thing to try.

Good tricks to prevent the return of viruses after format



people are always complaining why viruses is back even after full format?!!

will that is what I'm going to clarify in the following lines:
usually it is a good idea to backup your data to a USB stick or DVD before
fully formatting your HDD with its all partitions, but the thing you may not aware of is that you may copied the viruses with your files , so don't even think about restoring you files unless your fresh system is ready , i mean
you must have all necessary updates and fixes installed in addition to antivirus with latest virus database definitions and make sure that no software installed from a home made or Unreliable cd .
then you can do restoration.

BUT what if my data is too large to be backed up.??

will i have a good trick for that .assuming that you have 2 partitions, you can put all your important data in a partition other than C drive (boot partition). then make sure that you Hide (not format) that partition using third party tools like (partition magic) or (Acronis) that you may find for free in a maintenance boot cd like Hiren's BootCD
by hiding that partition you guarantee that the newly installed OS on the newly formatted Primary Partition(C) cant see old staff that may be infected with a virus or more, this way you can protect the fresh copy of windows from being infected as soon as it boots up for the first time.
now as i said before you must have all necessary updates and fixes installed in addition to antivirus with latest virus database definitions .
Now time has come to un-hide that old partition to make it visible and assessable , by using the same steps you did to hide it.
when you restart the pc the new OS will detect that Partition and the antivirus will start cleaning viruses if any.

all the best

MY BUFFALO EXTERNAL HARD DISK HD PXTU2 IS SHOWING 297 GB UNALLOCATED. I THINK ITS PARTITION IS CORUPPTED


Hi guy,
You can try a partition recovery software to recover your corruptted partition.I have succeed to recover deleted partition with Tenorshare data recovery.It can recover deleted,formatted,corruptted partition after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost data.
Anyway,you can download a trial version and scan your hard drive for free to check out whether your partition can be recovered. http://www.any-data-recovery.com/index.htm

New computer built, XP installed, no full HDD capacity??


Check your motherboard BIOS specs. I know that Windows XP can see a larger hard drive but some BIOS issues could limit the maximum partition.
(My XP box started with a small drive but I added a larger SATA drive later and formated it with the XP disc management software. One caveat: I was using SP3)

To expand your partition, try using a third party partitioning software option. These will often save you from having to reinstall the os (sometimes things go wrong but mostly they are good). I've had good luck with Paragon Partition Manager and Partition Magic (before it was purchased by Symantec).

I hope this helps.

(Paragon offers a 30-day free trial of their Partition Manager software; however I am not aware of the limitations of the software.)

I formatted the c drive with an xp disk, but it is corrupt and will not allow me to reinstall xp pro, how do I get to the partition that has the factory OS so I can reinstall it


Try deleting the partition and then create a new partition on the unallocated space, then perform a clean install of win xp onto it if you want to fix corrupted partition issue. If you want to recover data from your previous partition, you have to use third party utilities. First select another partition from your hard drive, format it (if it mayn't contain important data), if it contains important data select leave the partition intact from the XP setup menu. After setup download a software names "Active file Recovery", use it to recover your previous c drive, and you are done, if you face xtra probs mail me to: gktareq2008@gmail.com.

Hard drive full running xp ,drive is paritionedc,d


Hello,

To delete a partiition is quite easy in windows. but you will need a third party application like "partition magic" to merge two partitions together, this could be costly

The best advice I could give you is to back up all your information and reinstall your windows straight onto one partition. This will improve your overall speed and also probly also free more space by deleting unwanted programs, spam etc.

What to do with unreadable but recognised hard disk segate 400GB


Your Windows Xp bootable CD should have an option called "Format his file system using FAT32" while installing the OS. Use the option to format it. The only prob is that it creates only a single partiotion. After installing windows you can re-partition using a third party software such as Partition Magic(please note that it will not affect your windows installation as you can first re-size the windows drive to a lower capacity and then partition the un-allocated space.
