How can I split the use of my hard drives more effectively? My struggle with my C drive constantly to keep it over 300 M while my D drive sits there with over 5 G. The whole system pauses a lot because...

Need to know what size each patition is. Double click on "My Computer" and see how many drives are listed, normally C, D but if you also have an E then its patitioned. Right click on each to see how big they are. The only way to re-organise a pertition is to back up all info / format the drive and re-organise the partition to about 50/50. You can get aftermarket partition makers but will cost you, Another suggestion is to transfer all pics, docs etc to the other partition so that only programs are running in C drive and nothing is stored on it.

Won't fully boot. Get windows screen, then it stalls gray

reformated twice? have you already ran diagnostics on the hdd? check first the hdd thru diagnostics it might the hdd causing the problem. if no errors found in hdd make sure it was reformated as clean install. your hdd might have partition and just reinstalled OS on he same partition without deleting partitions. Try deleting partitions then create new partitions then reinstall OS.

How to fix hard drive that's not appear in window but seen in bios

You can use a more sophisticated partitioning and formating software program such as GParted or Acronis Disk Editor. Both programs can create a bootable cdrom that will boot and allow you to delete create and format partitions.



good luck!

My Lacie 500GB drive shuts my laptop down when i connect it.

similar issue: my notebook hangs instead of restarting. i thought its the usb2.0 of my rather old(3yr) notebook. but i bought a cheap usb box for my old 120G hdd and it plug-n-play like a charm on the same old notebook/same usb port. quite frustrated with this Lacie 500G beast.

so i ended up backing up my notebook using the 1-click backup of Lacie but using my old 120G hdd instead of the new Lacie500G. but then, search as i would through the Lacie documentation, i see no mention of how to restore the data... still looking...
