Question about Computers & Internet
The 500gb hard drive that was in the Dell was a Toshiba, and it died. I bought a new 320gb drive and installed it. A message is popping up that says I need 465 gb to restore to factory settings. Is there a way to bypass this?
The computer restore is trying to partition the drive into 2 logical drives and it cannot allocate the space it needs. Unless you have a clone of the drive or other hard drive there is nothing that you can do except get the right size.
