You can make your C= 220gb
then your D - 100gb
because the operational part should take the larger part of theharddisk and your C drive will be the operational part.

It depends entirely what you want to use the partitions for.

It's more of a personal choice.

If you have a lot of "DATA" then its sometimes nice to seperate that onto the "D:" partition, then if you have any OS issues down the road, you can easily Re-install your OS and programs without loosing any of your DATA on the D: Drive.

If this is not a concern then you can just leave it as One Full Drive (C: = 500GB)

I would keep at a minimum 100GB for Windows OS, Programs, Updates, Swap file etc for the C: drive.

I have a acer aspire 3684NWXMi series with a 80 GB hard disk drive and want to upgrade to the 320 - 500 GB do I have to buy a certain make or brand for it to work in my laptop?


According to this review there is no optical drive, (CD/DVD drive),

http://www.naaptol.com/laptops/acer-aspire-3684nwxmi/P/779.html

The new harddrive is blank. No Operating System on it.

No Windows.

After a person installs a new harddrive, the basic procedure is to use the Restoration Disk, and when asked choose Full Install.
(Destructive Installation)

No optical drive.

[No Restoration Disk is NO problem. Contact HP Support.
In the US it is $17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Have more info for US, and other countries if you need it ]

This means you will go through some 'changes', if no optical drive.
More than I believe you may wish to take on.
(Don't want to overstep myself, or seem rude)

The next thing is there may be a harddrive limit.
Might be capped at 135GB, and not allow a 300, or 500GB harddrive.
If this holds true the harddrive is then partitioned;

300GB harddrive;
Partitioned into 3 partitions, of 100GB each; or 4 partitions of 75GB each.

500GB harddrive;
Partitioned into 4 partitions of 125GB each.

Fools BIOS into thinking there is just a 75GB, or 100GB, or 125GB harddrive; instead of a 300GB, or 500GB unit.

Yes. More headache if you may not be adept.

I suggest using an external harddrive instead.

Just my thoughts,
Regards,

How to partition lenovo g560 laptop hard disk. I want to partition c drive which is 420GB?


You will need a seperate program to do that. Do a search for a free partition manager program. Be careful and backup important files before attempting.

Have zd8000, and have purchased a 500gb hrad drive. Does this model allow physical space for the use of parallel drives. Many thanks Jorge


I think you want to partition the 500GB hd.

Yes, you can partition it into smaller logical drives. You need to do this upon installation of the operating system, or use something like, Partition Magic, etc, afterward.

Good Luck

Check your AHCI (or ACHI, can't remember) settings in your BIOS. Turn them off, use "standard pata mode" even though you're using a SATA drive, and try again.

Replaced hardrive with seagate 7200 500gb momentus


When you created a partition on the new hard drive, did you make the partition active?
A partition that has not been activated can be formatted and Windows installed, disk check etc. but will not boot up.
You can make the partition by booting up in DOS with either a floppy disk or a boot CD and run the DOS command "fdisk" and navigate to Set the partition active.

USB device not recognized


Hi,
if it,s showing in the device manager as an exclamation mark. that means it,s found it, but can,t recognise it.
i,d suggest formatting and partitioning it, with some good software. also ensure that it,s powered via 2 usb cables to laptop, from 1 on the drive itself. some bigger hard-drives, need the extra power to drive them.
