Try to use the disk clean up located in the system tools. in this way you can recover some of disk space this will delete unnecessary, temporary files.

Aspire 6930 has 320 GB harddisk,i faced some problem with Avasti Antivirus n i formatted the system to run my system smoothly, but now the problem is harddisk is showing only 128 GB. that too the partition...

You can Reformat the system and REMOVE all partitions. Windows setup will create a new partition from available drive space. If you need to save your data,You can also use a utility like partition Magic and resize the partition. There is a trial version available at no charge. just google "partition magic"

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.
