Question about PC Desktops
Had vista someone tryed to load XP It wiped all files Vista crashed. Tryed to recover from recovery manager tryed two or three times got error messages had to order recovery disks Received them followed the instuctions for recovery Vista came up BUT now have a 250GB hard drive that has four partions showing very little space left on each section.. Doesn't even add up to 150 gb? How can I get rid of all partitions or can I then reload the vista from recovery disk?
Hi your hard drive is a 250gig when your reinstalling vista it will think that your pc needs to split the hard drives for recovery this is why its done that and because of that it will use a small part of the hard drive for its own mem use so you will lose the total size of the hard drive im running 1000gig and only getting 800 gig for my self this you cannot do anything about .
the only thing you can do is reinstall your vista program and when on the screen for formatting the hard drive it will say do you want to format the partitions in the box there will be a delet this partition you must delet all the partitions so there is only one left then you must reinstall vista on that one only this will get rid of all the other ones so you sould be left with just 1 hard drive when you start up vista this should put you back on to close to 235gig
hope this works for you
all the best thanks

try best file recovery tool which will help you to recover files from Windows
hard drive. Couple of days ago, even I was stuck under similar situation and
was thinking how to recover deleted files in Windows 7? Then I tried best file
recovery software which really helped me to get back all my important data stored
on the Windows hard drive. I think you should also try the software once.
