Jjfsrm,

to clone ur 80gb,u must have a cloning software..
and if u wanted that the 80gb is ur first drive,u should install ur operating system on ur 80gb..and of corz the jumper on ur 80gb hdd must be on primary position,and for d 37 should be a slave..
ur 37gb is the first boot thats why it is on the primary,but if u put ur 80gb into primary,ur computer will not function well coz it does not have the o.s..

Not show 80gb show 32gb


Click Start
Right-mouse click My Computer
Click Manage
Expand the Storage branch of the tree
Click Disk Management
You should see a rectangle with '32GB' in one "inner" rectangle, and '48GB' as "unallocated" storage.

Compare it to writing in only the first 32 pages of an 80 page diary.

Select the "unallocated' space.
Click to "Create Partition", so that you can use that "unallocated" space.

80gigs partition then reformatted and displays only 31gigs


If there are files on the drive that you need to recover, then do not format it. It sounds as though the computer that you put the drive into has an issue where the bios perhaps does recognize the drive correctly. Perhaps that can be corrected by updating the bios in the computer, and trying the drive again. Or you may want to put it back into the original computer, back up the files to other media, and then put the drive in the computer and re-partition.

What does the FDISK - "DISPLAY PARTITION INFORMATION" utility report? Do you have a copy of FDISK? If the partitoins in FDISK add up correctly, then it could just be that the data is corrupt, and windows is just unable to read. If that's the case, you should try a recovery application to restore your data..

If you're using the original XP version it wasn't able to format the correct size of the hard drives. You need to find a version with Service Pack 2 and boot off that CD in order to format the correct size of the drives. You could also boot off a Vista installation CD and format the correct size.

Partision prblem


This is because an 80GB hard drive only has 75GB inside it will not be exact because of the way hard drive manufacturers compute the size. 80GB by name but only 75GB in real hard drive space. much like a if you have a flash drive or a portable uSB you will notice this also.

I have 80 gb of harddisk but its showing only 31 gb wht maybe possibly prpb.. its samsung hard disk and i have installed windows xp


I am guessing it is an older machine. consider trying the following:
GO to  START - HELP AND SUPPORT - SYSTEM RESTORE - SETTINGS - SYSTEM RESTORE SETTINGS -SETTINGS - Try changing to SAVE LESS.
Maybe this is where all of your space went .
Also clean the HD: . START -  MY COMPUTER - rRight click HARD DRIVE -  DISK CLEAN UP - (AFTER THAT'S DONE) click TOOLS - DEFRAGMENT NOW.

HDD


I've seen a simular problem where the disk is empty but it says there is a reduced volume remaining, In my case i ran check disk (started on restart) on the drive and it found a ton of files that were lost and restored them, so this regained the lost space. If that doesn't work, try right clicking on it in my computer and formating it.
