Sorry buddy the win server 2003 locks the content in its installed drive when trying to use it from another OS usually this problem occurs when you try to change some settings in that OS
however you can revert this by editing the gpedit.msc profile in server 2003 run menu

I have purchased a new computer. Can I keep the files that I have saved on my passport from the old computer and set up a separate space for the files on the new computer?


Of course you can, you can either create a folder in your documents folder (or wherever you want) and copy the files over.
Or you can create a new partition on your hard drive, just for those files.
If you have windows 7, you can create a new partition without using any software, its built into windows. Here is a guide

If you dont have windows 7, you can use a FREE partition software program, try this http://download.cnet.com/Easeus-Partition-Master-Home-Edition/3000-2248_4-10863346.html

We are unable to load window xp on hard disc, before we only find the 32 GB in 80 GB hard disk ... we successfully installed the window xp, but when jumper setting done in accurate place, it shows 80 GB,...


I think this model is still an IDE type. You set the 32GB limit then jump the settings to read the full capacity of the drive. If you are trying to load XP OS from a blank drive.

First prime the hard drive, you can do low level formatting and use third party software to partition and format the drive. on FAT32 partition you can only use 8GByte to make the drive bootable. Make it primary if I remembered it correctly and active. Or use the NTFS format.

You can use also if it have the manufacturers' hard drive utilities to check the hard drive integrity. I know they have it. It also equip with zero fill to renew chain and links of the drive. Then partition, format, primary and active. Then load your OS.

Check also your CD disc integrity, scratches do make a lot of troubles. And also your cdrom/dvdrom drive.

Have 250Gb hard drive. Shows only 127Gb available. Used fdisk to remove and replace partition and reformat drive. No help. Drive is quiet running.


Since you have already posted you are running win xp.
for more info the drive limitations prior to win xp home/pro sp2 is 127 gb.
You can use a seperate partition program for full access to the drive with it being partitioned.
The only way around it is to have win xp home or pro with sp2 already included on the cd.

Doesn't show any files and folders when drive opened


Congrats, You got a nice virus. Its better you backup your drivers and data from ur root partition format it. reinstall your operating system and install avg 8.5 before browsing any of the other partition. I can surely tell u your task manager, registry editor or show hide folder won't be working. There is no permanent solution to this other than format. But beware don't browse other partition before installing avg 8.5. Your earlier installed antivir has given its way to virus its of no use. You won't be able to install antivirus or visit any malware removal virus site. welcome back.

Hi,
After plugging ur HDD, verify the device is detected or not in Device manager and Try Partitioning Again GUI mode (means in XP).. or follow the steps..

1- Go to Computer Management, Click Disk Management
2 - You will find you External HDD in the Right side
3 - Just Right Click the Drive, if it asks Initialize HDD, just Initialize and Create Partition as u like.

Have Fun

Windows does not see full size of new Hard drive


Is your disk correctly partitioned?

  1. Right-click My Computer.
  2. Click Manage.
  3. Click Disk Management.
Find your newly installed disk and see if there is any unpartitioned space on it. If there is, just create a new partition, or delete the previous one so you can create the partition which will consume full size of the disk.

Removed partitions. Now 'My Computer' doesn't see HDD.


You may want to use a program called Partition Magic to repartition your hard drive. You can try using the Disk Management Service built in to Windows 2000, XP, and Vista. This is available in "Computer Management" in Administrative Tools in the Control Panel.

Please note that after removing a partition, you need to create a new one then format it before the operating system can read it.

Hope this helps!
