Expanding partitions does not make your hard drive just rearranges space.

The best solution in this case is to purchase a bigger hard drive for your laptop.

How to partition for local disk

Here is an easy and quick method to partition a hard drive. This solution removes all existing partitions and data on the disk and then creates new partition for the disk. Thus you should backup all files and folders in advance.

Step 1:Launch Eassos PartitionGuru Fee and you can see all storage devices connected to your computer. Make sure you select the correct disk to partition, or you will have to face partition loss issue.

Step 2: Select the hard drive you want to partition and click "Quick Partition" button or press F6 key.

Step 3: Configure settings for new partitions and click "OK" button.
On the Quick Partition window, you can choose partition table format from MBR and GPT, decide how many partitions you need, select file system type for each partition and set partition size and labels. Do not forget to select the option "Align Partition to Integral Multiples of Sectors" which makes your disk 4K aligned.


Step 4: Eassos PartitionGuru prompts the rest actions will delete all data and perform formatting. If you have created backup, click Yes to continue.

Step 5: Wait for several seconds and the partitioning completes. Now the 120GB disk which held one partition has been partitioned to GPT disk with 4 partitions.

Kingston DT 101 G2 8GB USB appears as RAW type and appears totally full. It is asking me to Format.. Should I? How? I don't want to ruin..if it's not ruined already :)).

Sounds like corrupt MFT (master file table) for partitions or corrupted partition.
Try to check and repair (sometimes a file can corrupt it,after it is deleted the partition recovers) - using partition software (minitool or easus-both freeware).

I have a 16 gb usb store n go flash drive, divide by 8 public + 8 private zone, now how colud change the space between these 2 zone, i tried to format the drive in order to change the size of these 2...

Formatting just deletes all information that is on a disk, so if you format a drive with two partitions on it, you're only formatting the partitions, not deleting the partition

so what you want to do is delete the partition between the two drives.. or at least make one of the partitions bigger.

in Windows 7
if you go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Storage > Disk Management > right click the partition you want to make SMALLER and click Shrink Volume, then right click the partition you want to make BIGGER and then click extend volume

you have now created a smaller partition and a larger partition

in Windows XP you're gonna need a program to do this.. if you google partitioning programs you'll find heaps, a good one that was very common was called "Partition Magic"

hope this helps

I tried to format my F: using NTFS file system. But only C: is my bootable drive and now I can not perform any operation on F: What can I do so that I can get rid of this problem?

Assuming you have Windows XP or later, do the following:
1. Click on "Start"
2. Right-click on "My Computer"
3. Select "Manage"
4. Expand "Storage" if it isn't already and click on "Disk Management"
5. You will see a list of your disk drives. Each drive will have a graphic illustration of each partition or logical drive that it contains. You must first delete the partition or logical drive in order to reformat the drive. Make absolutely sure it is the drive you want to reformat! Once you delete a partition or logical drive, you can't go back!
6. Right click on the partition in the drive you want to format (F: in this case)
7. You will see either "delete logical drive" or "delete partition".
8. Delete all partition(s) and/or the logical drive. If there is more than one partition, you must remove them all. Click on "Yes" if you are asked whether you are sure.
9. When finished, there should be one unallocated partition shown. Right click on it and select "New Partition". Follow the directions and select "Primary Partition", "OK"
10. Select the full size displayed and "OK"
11. Assign the drive letter, presumably "F:" and "OK"
12. Select "NTFS" file system, and "OK".
13. The Windows operating system will begin formatting the drive. Depending on its size, it may take 1/2 hour or more to finish.
14. After formatting is finished, you can right-click again on the partition and set it as an active partition.
15. You're done! Exit out of the Disk Management menus and the drive should show up in Windows Explorer as drive F: (or whatever you selected). If not you may have to reboot.

I hope this helps. Good luck!

I have bought a IOmega Screenplay Pro 1 TB. I was able to see some partition in the HD. Accidentally all these partition were removed. So i need to create those partitions and the size details of each...

ScreenPlay Director Partitions There are five partitions on the ScreenPlay Director's hard disk. Three partitions are grayed out and will list as "Healthy-Unknown" in Windows Device Manager. These partitions contain the ScreenPlay TV interface and system settings and are not available to store media files. The two active partitions both appear as "Untitled". The larger partition is formatted with an NTFS file system. Use this partition to store your media files when you connect to the ScreenPlay Director from a networked computer or transfer files via direct USB connection. The smaller partition is formatted FAT32 and is used only when updating the ScreenPlay Director firmware. Do not place your media files on this partition! If you accidentally store media files on the FAT32 partition, you can use a computer to move them to the larger NTFS-formatted partition. You will not be able to see media files on the FAT32-formatted partition when using the ScreenPlay TV interface. Formatting the data partition will erase all existing data! If you have files on the ScreenPlay Director you want to save, move them to another drive or volume before reformatting.
*******************************************CAUTION!********************************************************* Do not change (format or delete) the partitioning on the ScreenPlay Director hard disk as this will remove the firmware that enables the ScreenPlay Director to communicate with your TV set. Only media files stored on the active data partition (the largest partition) can be viewed or played on a TV. The ONLY partition that can be formatted is the data partition (the largest partition).
Conclusion: If you have deleted or formatted any of the first 4 partitions on the unit that is not the data partition. You now own a BRICKED ScreenPlay which HAS to be replaced. No if ands or buts about it. YOUR DEVICE IS DEAD.

I formated my c drive of my acer aspire 1640z, and when i try to restore with my restore cd i get the mesage boot manager is missing.can you help me pls?

Your restore disks also use fdisk and format to do the same thing you did this way by reformatting, but without all these extra hassles. Do you have a primary partition that is in active status? to check use a Windows boot disk or an MS Dos boot disk making sure that they have fdisk.exe,,,and scandisk.exe fdisk and select option 4(display partition information)
2.if the partitions are listed then look for an uppercase A in the status column of your primary partition
3.if there are no partitions listed use fdisk to create new partitions and then use format to format the partitions.
4. then try your restore disks they should work, if you have already done all of this email me and we will move on from there if you are still having the problems. Hoped it helped!!!

Format a seagate drive st96812a for use in rocketfish enclosure kit RF-HD25

Formatting a Secondary Hard Drive
Right-Click on the “My Computer” icon either on your desktop or in the Start Menu and select “Manage.”
A new window titled “Computer Management” comes up. Select “Storage” from the left hand side by clicking it once, then select “Disk Management(local)” from the right side by double-clicking it.
Now in the lower part of the main frame (right side) of the window you should see a nice visual of all your hard drives. Each line is a different drive. Each box on a line (with a colored bar at the top and a size displayed in MB or GB) is a partition on the drive. Partitions are separations of space on a drive. Unless you are doing something specific that requires multiple partitions, you only want one partition per drive.
First you must delete any existing partitions on the drive you are going to format. Do this by right-clicking on the partition's box and selecting “Delete Partition...” Since you already know that you will be deleting everything on the drive, and have already backed everything up, you can safely say yes to any warning the computer presents you with.
If there are multiple partitions make sure you have saved everything off them since they might each have different drive letters (i.e. “D:” or “F:”). Then repeat the above step for each of them. If you only want to format one partition that is OK and you can continue to the next step without deleting the other partitions.
The box for the drive to be formatted should now have a black bar at the top of it and should say “Unallocated” under its size (see picture). Right click on it and select “New Partition...” The New Partition Wizard comes up.
In the New Partition Wizard click next. On the next page make sure “Primary Partition” is selected and click next. Now make the size equal to the maximum (it should already be set to it), and click next again. On the next page the computer will automatically choose the first available drive letter for the new drive. However, if you like you can choose another drive letter from the drop-down menu, and then click next.
Finally the New Partition Wizard asks if you would like to format the new partition and if so what format. Choose “NTFS” as it is faster and more secure. Leave the “Allocation unit size” as “Default.” In the “Volume label” field enter whatever name you want the drive to have. Simple is better. Avoid using spaces. Lastly, if the drive is brand new and has never been used before check the “Perform a quick format” box. If the drive has been used before leave this box unchecked. Leave the “Enable file and folder compression” box unchecked and click next. Then on the next page click finish.
The wizard will now spend a little while formatting the drive. On old or large drives this may take a while. Do not close the “Computer Management” window until it finishes. You will know it is done when the word under the size of the drive changes from “Formatting” to “Healthy” and the name and drive letter you chose for the new drive show up. After it is finished you can proceed to use your newly formatted drive.

Unable to delete or fomat hard drive.

1) You cannot format the OS partition using Windows “Computer Management”

2) If you are trying to format another partition or another Drive in your computer and you can not do that thru “Computer Management”, then you can format your drive using a Windows Cd or any Partition Utility tool. (Using that you also can format your main (OS) partition)
