Question about Computers & Internet
My computer says the problem is caused by how the drive is configured. So how do I configure it to get the full 75 gigabyes for backup?
Depending on your operating system. Start -> control panel->administrative tools->disk management. When the drive shows itself right click on the partition, select delete partition. Then right click on the drive and select simple partition. The OS will then format the drive.

SOURCE: EISA configuration
As mentioned by others above this partition is a special boot partition which is supposed to make it so you can take a few relatively simple steps to restore the system to it's original configuration. (FWIW, this restoration process is normally relatively idiot proof and even easier than using ghost as long as the restore data hasn't been deleted) Depending upon the system configuration deleting this partition could also make the system entirely unbootable so I would advise not to mess with it if the drive is the original boot drive.
That said..... The partition can be deleted from within Windows 2000/XP/Vista by running a command prompt and then Diskpart. (fdisk in Win 95/98) Using Diskpart type Help for a list of commands and be absolutely sure you know what your doing so you don't delete the wrong partition.

is your drive normally detectable in system? if yes [it has a letter asigned] run command prompt and cd /D <drive letter> chkdsk /r if asks to unmount say yes then reinstall backup program
