Several brands now have the recovery software and backup of your computer on the D: partition.

You probably have XP (Vista doesn't try to stop you from viewing the contents of the drive). I would recommend using a 3rd party explorer clone to move the music files back to the C: and leave that partition alone. Also if you have not made your recovery discs yet do so before messing with the recovery partition.

On an HP or Compaq the recovery disc manager can be found under HP or under PC Help & Tools in the start menu.

I have a lenovo g560 and my hard disk was partitioned only one local disc ie C and now i want to make another 2 more partitions hw is it possible can any body pls reply


I recommend you to use AOMEI Partition Assistant Server Edition. It is a magic tool to manage your disk better. With its help, it is a piece of cake to create partitions as many as you can, no matter primary or logical. It is really worthy using, because I used it before.

Kingston pend drive cant open


If you are using Sandisk USB Drives, it may be that partition is password protected. If you can run the U3 Launchpad, it should prompt you for a password for you to access your "Drive F". Put in your password, and Drive F should be accessible.

175gb missing from 250GB hard drive


Hi,

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.

Total size is not 80 GB IDE Hard Drive


Hi,

Two possible solutions but both calls for another software/utility.
1. Use FDISK but you should be booting and running in DOS mode;
2. the other is Partition Magic which runs under Windows environment.

The idea is to delete the existing partition (that shows only 31.50Gb) and thereafter re-partition to the full capacity of the drive. of course doing so would erase the contents. Further, a format after the re-partition is required.

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.

2nd HDD installed as slave but still unloaded with software


Simple, if your hardware is working all OK do this:
AND DO THIS CUZ WINDOWS XP HOME EDITION lacks of the needed administrative tools.

Go to the net and find PARTITION MAGIG or PARTITION MANAGER... download the windows version of any of those and partition the HD with them.

REMEMBER:

1. PARTITION MUST BE LOGICAL, NOT PRIMARY
2. PARTITION MUST BE NTFS (Windows XP version) that you will see in Partition Magic options...
3. If you format from Windows, disk must be intitialized as BASIC type.

if you do this and you suceed the HD will work, if not, it has a problem, either logical or physic.

Good Luck

2nd hard drive


1. Make sure all cables are connected, does your bios detect the drive on startup?
2. Is the drive formated and set active?

to check if your windows sees the drive and is it active go to your desktop and right click on my computer -> manage -> Disk management.

You should see something like the picture below:
Your first disk will be Disk0 and 2nd disk will be Disk1 If you cant see Disk1 then the drive is faulty OR not connected properly make sure the drive is working with cables attached.
Listen if the drive spins. If it doesnt then something is wrong.

If you can see the drive there then you might not have made any partitions onto it. You can make new paritions to the disk right there, right click on your disk1(your 2nd hdd) and create a new partition. If that is not available initialize the disk with rightlick and blablaa .. I hope this solves it. :-)

Using as startup disk


Hi,

If you used Acronis, you need to clone the 30Gb and not backup. In doing so, the booting information is likewise copied to the 80Gb, whereas back up is simply copying contents (that you specified) hence will not boot and not be active.

Pls remember that by cloning, Acronis would erase the partition (and contents) of the 80Gb. At certain settings, it would also split the 80Gb into 2 partitions; 30Gb & 50Gb. Further, verify that the 80Gb is "Set Active" and partitioned as a Primary and not Logical.

As to your other concern of installing, in some instances, some not so recent motherboards' BIOS/CMOS will not recognize the 80Gb. Other than that, you were doing it correct; new 80Gb as primary/master with jumper to the pins nearest the IDE cable, any other device (CD ROM or another HD) should be set as primary/slave (SL). Additionally, pls verify that your motherboard auto-detected your new 80Gb as your primary boot media (settings in your CMOS/BIOS).

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
