Western digital corporation(wdc) is probably the maker of the disk, and default name for their drive

open my computer, one click(left) on the drive, rename or open properties, and voila, you can rename it to whatever makes your clock wind up.

thankya for using fixya

My windows XP OS won't recognize my SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 300GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive


I found that often, external hard drives just don't have any active partitions and thus don't show up in Windows. Go into the control panel, administrative tools, computer management and then the disk manager and see if it has a partition. If it's just unallocated space, right click and make one.

I was reinstalling WindowsXP and hit the wrong drive to delete. I do not know if there is a way to get back all the data I had saved on the 250GB signiture mini. If not I will have to reformat it. Thank...


Try to make it a primary slave and use any partitioning software to undelete the partition. if it will not resolve your problem then you need to utilize a data recovery company or re-partion and re-format it.

Not able to delete partition in hard drive


This will be in a few steps..pleas follow carefully.
l

To delete a partition or logical drive • Using the Windows interface if(typeof(IsPrinterFriendly) != "undefined") { var l = "#BKMK_WINUI"; var nl; var c = l.charAt(0); var o = document.getElementById("EO"); switch (c){ case "/": nl=(" [http://" + document.domain + l + "]"); break case "#": nl=(""); break default: nl=" [" + l + "]" } if(o != null) o.innerHTML = nl; }
Using a command line if(typeof(IsPrinterFriendly) != "undefined") { var l = "#BKMK_CMD"; var nl; var c = l.charAt(0); var o = document.getElementById("EU"); switch (c){ case "/": nl=(" [http://" + document.domain + l + "]"); break case "#": nl=(""); break default: nl=" [" + l + "]" } if(o != null) o.innerHTML = nl; }
Using the Windows interface 1.
Open Computer Management (Local).
2.
In the console tree, click Computer Management (Local), click Storage, and then click Disk Management.
3.
Right-click the partition, logical drive, or basic volume you want to delete, and then click Delete Partition.
If the menu item reads Delete Volume instead of Delete Partition, the volume is a dynamic volume. For instructions on how to delete a dynamic volume, see Related Topics.
Caution
• When you delete a partition, all data on that deleted partition or logical drive is lost.
• You cannot recover deleted partitions or logical drives.
Notes
• To perform this procedure on a local computer, you must be a member of the Backup Operators group or Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. To perform this procedure remotely, you must be a member of the Backup Operators group or Administrators group on the remote computer. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure. For more information, see Default local groups if(typeof(IsPrinterFriendly) != "undefined") { var l = "/WindowsServer/en/library/f6e01e51-14ea-48f4-97fc-5288a9a4a9b11033.mspx"; var nl; var c = l.charAt(0); var o = document.getElementById("EKC"); switch (c){ case "/": nl=(" [http://" + document.domain + l + "]"); break case "#": nl=(""); break default: nl=" [" + l + "]" } if(o != null) o.innerHTML = nl; } , Default groups if(typeof(IsPrinterFriendly) != "undefined") { var l = "/WindowsServer/en/library/1631acad-ef34-4f77-9c2e-94a62f8846cf1033.mspx"; var nl; var c = l.charAt(0); var o = document.getElementById("EPC"); switch (c){ case "/": nl=(" [http://" + document.domain + l + "]"); break case "#": nl=(""); break default: nl=" [" + l + "]" } if(o != null) o.innerHTML = nl; } , and Using Run as if(typeof(IsPrinterFriendly) != "undefined") { var l = "/WindowsServer/en/library/8782f8ab-9538-4111-8a68-7bfd130c21c01033.mspx"; var nl; var c = l.charAt(0); var o = document.getElementById("EUC"); switch (c){ case "/": nl=(" [http://" + document.domain + l + "]"); break case "#": nl=(""); break default: nl=" [" + l + "]" } if(o != null) o.innerHTML = nl; } .
• To open Computer Management, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management.
• You cannot delete the system volume, boot volume, or any volume that contains the active paging file or crash dump (memory dump), or OEM partition.
• You cannot delete an extended partition unless the extended partition is empty.
All the logical drives in an extended partition be deleted before you can delete the extended partition.
