    I found a free partitioning software... resized my c drive and then removed the software off my laptop. For the life of me I can't remember how i partitioned it in the first place... I know I didn't use any software to help... one day I guess I'll remember... thank you though!

Is what you want to do is to remove the 2nd partition and then expand the first partition? Id so, there are many Bootable CD's that can achieve this.
e.g. PartitionMagic 8, Acronis Disk Director. Both can be found from Hiren's BootCD v9.x.
Google it for ISO download, burn it to CD. Boot from the CD and use it to remove 2nd partition and giving all the room to first partition.

There are several freeware programs that will allow you to change, move, convert, etc your partitions. Here is one that is relatively easy to use:

How do I wipe out my acer extensa 5620-4020 and reinstall my vista operating system


Boot your laptop using the Vista DVD. During the installation you will be prompted to delete the operating system partition. Make sure you have everything you need backed up prior to deleting the partition.

Have a travel mate 2423wxci preinstalled windows xp home edition. Have formated the hard drive but can't find the recovery disk. How do I get one?


Hi,

Did you format the whole drive?

If you didn't fully format the drive then the Recovery Partition could still be intact.

Start the laptop up and at the splash screen keep tapping F10 or ALT+F10 and if the Recovery Partition is intact the laptop will start the recovery process, if you get a message say BOOT EXECUTE/NO then the partition is not there.

You have 2 options now:
  1. Call Acer and get a set of recovery disc's, will cost approx between £20-60 for a set of discs.
  2. Buy a copy of XP home edition and then download all the drivers for your hardware.
Thanks

Can I repartition the drive, and if so, how?


I like Acronis Disc Director for extending partitions. It depends on what drive are you repartitioning. You can use Disk Management if you're not partitioning system partition. In Vista you have an option to extend partition with a free space from other partitions or from unpartitioned space without loosing your data.

Can I Repartition WD 500GB My Book Firewire Drive w/DATA ON IT?


Greetings.

You will need to have a third party software to achieve this. I recommend norton partition magic. I have been using it in the same scenario as yours and works. they now support firewire. Easy to use and gets the job done.

Hope that helps.

I hace a Acer Travel Mate 4001lc, I tried to upgrade the HD from 60 GB to 250GB but the Laptop just recognized 130GB


that sounds like its a limitation of the laptop try updating the bios. if it still stays the same see if you can go into disk management and partition the other half of the drive. it would show up as unpartitioned space.

How to recover space


Older motherboards without large disk support only handle a partition size that it can manage. Depending on the motherboard, it either partitioned the drive and used a 32gb portion, or it just disreguards the span after the 32gb point. If the former is the case, you may have to repartition the drive. There are some programs that allow you to do whis without reinstalling your OS, but they have a risk of corrupting data. If you have the ability to backup all your computers information and reformat/reinstall your OS, things should be back in order. Warning: Make sure you educate yourself on the process before you set out on this job. You will want to backup any information on the drive as well as make sure you have any drivers you may need before you begin. (if you are using windows XP, I suggest you read up on this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313348 ) If you want to attempt a repartition without reinstalling your operating system, you may want to try Partition Magic, Drive Image, Norton Ghost, or Partition Logic. (Some are free, some are not. A quick search will help you find their websites for more info.)
