This message normally appears when trying to format the partition by right clicking on it, but it maybe a downloaded file or a file that is running so try starting your pc up in safe mode (F8 on boot up)so as there are no drivers or unimportant programmes running and try deleting the files again.

Formated hard drive from win98 using format C;/s. HD 32 bit formatted. Want Hd formatted 16 bit. Compaq desktop built 1987. F2 does not work. F1 does not work Which key gets to HD...

Are you referring to the file system?
Do you have a copy of DOS?
I think you want to create a partition using the FAT16 File System.
If you have it use FDISK (old DOS app), once it loads it asks you if you want to enable large disk support - just say no and then delete all current partitions on your HD and recreate a new one.
Warning: Make sure you have the correct drive selected as this will delete everything on the drive.
FAT16 Partitions can only go up to 2GB in size, so you cant make any bigger ones with it.
Partition Magic and programs like that can also be used to manage disk partitions. Let me know if you need anything else

Only 125G is showing

A disk-drive can be "partitioned".

It's possible that your disk-drive has two partitions:
* a "primary" partition of 125G,
* an "extended" partition of the "other" 125G,
with a "logical" drive allocated within the extended partition.

Inside your laptop, you would have seen 'C:' as the "primary", and 'D:' as the "logical" partition, and 'E:' as your CD/DVD drive.

So, if UBUNTU is only looking at the "primary" partition, it will report 125GB.

Connect the drive as a "slave" to some desktop computer, and check for having multiple partitions, and do your backup from that system.

175gb missing from 250GB hard drive


Appreciate the "Ask Me".

The only plausible explanation for the missing disk space would be the protected folder "System Volume Info".

Re-formatting would not restore your free space, however, re-partitioning would. May I suggest that you try PowerQuest Partition Magic. Of course like formatting, re-partitioning would completely delete the partition itself and would grant you back the entire disk space.

Unfortunately you can not use the same with the 1st partition since that is your active partition and presumably where your OS is residing. A workaround is to use another hard disk temporarily and transfer all the contents of partition 1 and make that eventually as your primary HD. Thereafter, re-partition again the entire 250Gb HD.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Partitioning ext. "MY BOOK"

You don't need to format it. You can also just convert it to NTFS and keep the current data.
There is also no requirement to create more than one partition.

In the command prompt window, type
convert drive_letter: /fs:ntfs

You'll find this in Windows Help. Just search for convert ntfs.

Can't Partition the Ext. HD

I am rusty on Mac's and can't offer any specific help, but I am wondering if your problem is in fact not a partitioning problem, but something else.

In the case that it is a partitioning problem, most operating systems (I assume OS X follows the herd on this one) have a partitioning tools on them somewhere. Have you tried formatting the drive?

Also, I hope you take no offense to this, but are you sure it's "partitioning" you're having a problem with, and not "reading", "writing", "formatting", "installing", or "mounting"?

You could try the company's website for tools that should let you do what you need to in order to get the drive to work.
