    Hi Darren. It is a Western Digital hard drive, with 40 gigs, a guy set it up for me and put in 2 partitions without asking me. I have worked with it til now and it is now full on the c drive the other drive I don't use as all my stuff in loaded on c drive. If I had just one I would have double the space, but don't know how to remove it and make all into one drive, any help appreciated. The guy who set it up for me would want £40 to it for me.

    Thanks so far.

PowerEdge 2900 not detecting 2 sata hard drives installed


If you have only One Drive the computer is telling you that the One Drive has "TWO" partitions. The main partition has the OS and Programs, and the 2nd partition is for reserve/OS backup data.

I dropped (about 9 inches) my Maxtor 500Gb external HD


Hi John, yes you are right. Your hard-disk is damaged due to the fall. And although your computer won't find it you may still be able to recover some information from the drive.
If running Windows, plug-in your drive and check the taskbar to see if the safely remove icon comes up. if it does then try one of the following:
1. Install and use a good partition recovery software to recover your entire partition to a safe location. I personally use EASEUS partition recovery.
2. Use a file recovery software like R-Studio to try and recover individual files

Note that either of these processes will take a while, so be patient and make sure you have lots of free space on your computer or on another external drive.

I hope this helps, all the best

How do you format the hard drive?


I have set up a dozen or so if these units.... so it's fairly simple (if you understand the terminology) - By the way, I just got off the phone with Samsung tech support to confirm. John at GVI /Samsung says the drive cannot exced 160 Gig or it will not recognize it period. Secondly, the drive cannot have any format or partition whatsoever. So use a partition tool and delete the partition and the DVR will initialize it and format the drive to suit it's operating system.
I have had luck repartitioning the drives in a basic FAT 32 and making sure I did NOT set the partition as active..and the DVR configured the drive properly. Good Luck!

Hard disk partitions


If you are comfortable in booting the system in dos mode and running dos commands, The hard disk can formated through it. If not then you can download a Partition Manager software (trail version link ) Using which you redistribute the data into different drives or Add/delete drives.

Wiped out partition on WD500GB My Book


Try using a recovery utility like Acronis or R-Studio. I have used R-Studio alot and it always comes through for me. The drive will be recognised but no drive letter will be assigned. Run the programme and after it scans the drive, select what you want to save and save it to another drive or partition.
That should do it.

Cheers.

Hi,
You can install a software called partition magic and use it to merge the two partitions into one.
But you might need to free some space on your C drive. What you can do is copy (CUT) all your My Documents data and paste it to your D drive or your second drive. This should free a lot of space enough to install partition magic.

You can download the trial version software from http://www.soft32.com/download_151.html
Install it and merge your partitions and then you can uninstall or purchase if you want.

Can't See HDD in Windows Explorer


Afraid Excelstors hard drive repair tool requires the drive to get wiped to fix the errors not like seagate or western digitals, only thing worth trying is put in a windows xp disc and boot off the disc, Press R on the first screen to do a repair in like dos mode. it will take you into a black screen with a dos prompt, type this in CHKDSK C: /R then press enter it will take about 30min-1hr but has a good chance of getting the drive to read.. once complete take out xp disc and restart pc all the best John
