Question about Seagate (ST380011A) 80 GB IDE Hard Drive
I have 2 hd with the sam model ST380011A 80 GB. But they have difference size ( 74.53 GB and 31.50 GB)
When I run the software Active KILLDISK for DOS v4.1.
Disk 1 has 155061 cylinders.
Disk 2 has 65530 cylinders.
Disk 1 and 2 have the same tracks/cylinder = 16.
Disk 1 and 2 have the same sectors/track = 63.
Disk 1 and 2 have the same Bytes/secter = 512.
Total size of disk 1 = 74.53 GB
Total size of disk 2 = 31.50 GB
Could you please show me how to fix the disk 2 in order to get the same size with disk 1 ?
I'm so appriciate your help.
Again thanks for you time and you help.
(Before i have 2 disk with the same size, but after i used the CD Seagate software and did some things that cause this problem. Now i don't have that CD Seagate)
Two possible solutions but both calls for another software/utility.
1. Use FDISK but you should be booting and running in DOS mode;
2. the other is Partition Magic which runs under Windows environment.
The idea is to delete the existing partition (that shows only 31.50Gb) and thereafter re-partition to the full capacity of the drive. of course doing so would erase the contents. Further, a format after the re-partition is required.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.
