If you are referring to unallocated space of your hard disk, just make sure you are logged in to Windows with admin rights/access, then go to Windows Disk Management to create partition/volume from the unallocated space.

I have a SeaGate FreeAgent GoFlex 500Gb external hard dish and its shows only 230Gb.I formatted it many a times but still shows 230Gb... Please help me to fix the problem..

If you're using windows 7, right click on my computer and choose "manage" then "disk management". There, you should see your external HDD. If it is indeed a 500GB HDD and assuming it is registered as D:, you should expect to see something like (D:) 230GB and 270GB unallocated on one of the disks.

If that's the case, you can go to D:, right click and choose extend volume. Then you can extend it up to the total storage available

Good luck hope this help

Toshiba 500gb portable drive only shows 230gb after imaging my c drive

Sounds like you cloned the drive. Yes? Plug the external drive in, go to
Windows Button > Right click Computer > Manage > Disk Management.
Select the external drive and right click and select extend volume.

I have encrypted my local disk using bitlocker encryption and now it shows Local Disk(D:) is not accessible Access is denied and when i right click it was not showing security tab. please help me

Try This:

Before you start
  • You must be logged on as an administrator.

  • The volume must be encrypted.

To turn off BitLocker Drive Encryption
  1. Click Start, click Control Panel, click Security, and then click BitLocker Drive Encryption.
  2. From the BitLocker Drive Encryption page, find the volume on which you want BitLocker Drive Encryption turned off, and click Turn Off BitLocker Drive Encryption.
  3. From the What level of decryption do you want dialog box, click either Disable BitLocker Drive Encryption or Decrypt the volume as needed.
    By completing this procedure, you have either disabled BitLocker or decrypted the operating system volume.

    Good Luck!!

When i try to open my c drive in a dell inspiron laptop computer, it gives an error message that access denied. what might be the problem?

It isn't a problem it is for the safety of the Operating System. Access is usually denied because you are not an "Administrator".

Dell inspiron 1525 will not boot. it posts but will not go past the dell spash screen. tried accessing restore partition.... tried reinstalling windows from restore cd....says windows loading then hangs...

RY THIS FIRST Hold down FN KEY and POWER Button for 3 Secs to go in Diagnostics Mode (works on almost all Dell Laptops) and run the full test you'll find something wrong if its a internal issue (even if its a hard drive issues), see if that fixes it, but I'd check the CPU HS Fan (the slots where air comes out)just blow in there and you'll see dust come out, clean it out with Air Can or Air Hose at 60PSI to prevent it blowing your blades up on the fan. If its not a hard drive or cooling issue, might want to try the Memory check (Dell has laptops have memory issues from time to time) Hope this helps!
