    If you are running Windows the partition should appear in "My Computer" as a partition of the drive in question, if it exists. Otherwise where are you looking for it?

Right-Click "Computer", Manage, Storage/Disk Management. What you see here is what you have, or at least what Windows thinks is connected. If you have a missing hard drive, check your hard drive connections.

Drive only reports 56gb to partition - missing 100gb! How do I access the remaining space?

Click Start
Right-mouse click "My Computer".
Click "Manage".
Expand the "Storage" part of the tree.
Click "Disk Management".
View the diagram for your disk-drive.
Does it show the 56GB partition, followed by 100GB of "unallocated" space,
or does it show one (approximately) 160GB partition?

If the former, backup all the files in the partition (copy to an external disk-drive, or copied to DVD-recordable disks, or to another computer).
Then, use "Disk Management" to delete that "small" partition, and to define a new partition that "spans" the entire volume, and to initialize the partition.
Then, copy the "saved" files back onto the drive.

I have my drive split into 2 partitions but only 1 shows up now, how can i get it back to 2 partitions?

With the drive connected to your computer and powered on, go to the Start Menu and you will see where it says "Computer" or "My Computer" (depending on operating system). Right click on "Computer" or "My Computer" and a menu will appear.

On that menu click on "Manage" and it will open up the Computer Management window.

In the Computer Management window you will see "Disk Management" on the left towards the bottom. Click on that.

In the Disk Management window you will see a list of all of your drives and partitions. Find the hard drive that has the missing partition and see if the missing partition shows up in there. Make sure it shows that the partition is formatted as a filesystem that Windows will recognize such as NTFS and also make sure that it is assigned a drive letter.

If the partition is formatted and does not have a drive letter assigned, Right-Click on the partition and a menu will appear. On that menu, click on "Change Drive Letter and Paths". That will open a dialog box that will take you through the steps of assigning a drive letter to that partition. Once you finish, it should show up in "Computer" or "My Computer" as a drive.

If the partition is not formatted to NTFS or the filesystem you would like it to be (NTFS is recommended for Windows), just Right-Click on the partition and the menu will appear. On that menu click on "Format" and go through the process of formatting the partition to NTFS or your preferred filesystem and it should format the partition and assign a drive letter to the partition and should now show up on your computer.

WARNING: If you format the partition, you will lose any data on that partition and you may not be able to recover the lost data.

I hope this helps! If it does, please leave me a good rating and feedback. I would greatly appreciate it!

Best Regards,

Not showing folders when conected to television but shows them on pc.

Your partition probably has unallocated space before the main partition (usually a tiny bit like 8mb). This will cause an empty menu. Use mini-tool partition wizard home (free) and delete the partition (backup files first!). Then create a new partition with FAT32 setting and change the 'Partition Align To' setting to 'MB'. This will make sure no unallocated space is created. Apply the settings and your done!. Make sure you DRAG your whole folder onto the drive instead of copy/paste. This will ensure your files are copied in the same order they appear in your folder on the PC. The jukebox is finicky about that.

Is it possible to keep the operating system on drive c and the data on drive d and how to do this

yes, partition the drive...
If installing a new OS, Partition drive one with 1/4 of the drives size, then install the os to that partition, once installed if using Windows, partition 1 should show as C: drive, and partition 2 should show as an additional drive.. Each Partition will show as a separate drive..

If the OS is already installed, you can use a program such as partition magic, or you can use MS disc manage (right click My Computer, Select Manage)..

Partition problem

In my humble opinion, the best option is to install a second (blank or larger) drive. Install some recovery software such as "easy recovery pro" or something that will be able to read files from a filesystem that has had the partition table written over. Start with trying to scan using FAT32, and in failing that, try NTFS. Restore the data to the second drive, format the first and partition as required. Copy the data back to the first drive to the partitions that you specified, and erase the data from the second drive. A free option may be pandora recovery, available at

Partition parameter

From the data you provided, the D drive is deleted and is newly created. But it is not yet formatted. So the data is virtually deleted. Why I said virtually is because, the data is still there on the drive physically and you can recover it using third party tools like OO disk recovery tool. That is why partition magic is still showing data on it.
And it is also obvious that the task which Partition Magic started (splitting drives) is not finished properly. That is why K partition is incorrectly formatted. It is natural that it asks format of D drive because D drive belongs to no file type and it must be of FAT32 or NTFS or other file system.
The solution for your problem is try recovering your data on D drive using disk recovery tools. Then format it using FAT32 or NTFS. Format K drive also in FAT32 or NTFS. Use either partition magic or Computer Management. Since already PM caused problems on your computer, try computer management. It is safe.
