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.

Pls help me to partition my hard disk drive as c and D


If the computer is already running with Windows, then you can use a program called Partition magic to partition the C drive into two partitions - a C and a D drive.
If you are installing Windows from scratch then you can use the Windows installation CD to install Windows. When the Windows installation begins, delete the existing partition, then create a new partition but size the 1st partition (C drive) to what you require and continue with the installation.
When Windows has finished installing you can create the D drive by opening Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management - click on the un-partitioned portion of the hard disk, create a extended partition - and then format this partition in NTSF When completed Disk 1 will be shown as Healthy (system)

Also make sure on harddisk for jumper settings. Let me know if you need further assistance. thanks for using FixYa.

"D:\ is not accessible"


Well this is kinda of a funky setup you got going with 3 drives, why dont you make a partition on the c drive to handle vista and make another partition on C: to handle xp? Run a multiboot and there you go. See vista is going to take over that secound drive no matter what, also you got to realize that its hard stating a multiboot from two diffrent drives, use your other 2 drives to store your programs and your set.

Check Computer Management / Disk Management. Windows on Windows XP, Probably the Drive needs formatting first and partitioning before it will visible on My Computer. By Default the new Hard Drive is "Unpartitioned / Unallocated". So acess disk Management to format and partition the Hard Drive.

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.

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.
