I highly recommend AOMEI Partition Assistant Server Edition to help you. You can use the function split, create, resize to partition your hard disk.

If the computer is already running with Windows, then you can use a program called Partition magic to partition the C drive into two partitions - a C and a D drive.
If you are installing Windows from scratch then you can use the Windows installation CD to install Windows. When the Windows installation begins, delete the existing partition, then create a new partition but size the 1st partition (C drive) to what you require and continue with the installation.
When Windows has finished installing you can create the D drive by opening Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management - click on the un-partitioned portion of the hard disk, create a extended partition - and then format this partition in NTSF When completed Disk 1 will be shown as Healthy (system)

the hard drive might be damaged bad sectors
the operating sytem will take/use a certain ammount of space onyour hard drive
click start right click on my computer you should see your drive usually C: select properties click tools check now tick both boxes automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery on any bad sectors or you could tick one box and wait until its finished then return and tick the other box
then select check now start should schedule this task when restart

do not do anything while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may damage your computer
then defragment your hard drive
http://www.filehoo.com/download/Partition-Magic-8,0.aspx when you download partition magic you will have the option to make rescue to disks to boot from make these disks then change your first boot device your to floppy drive this will give you options to partition then partition only the good sectors of your hard drive and install an operating system to the good partition

Hard disk partitions


If you are comfortable in booting the system in dos mode and running dos commands, The hard disk can formated through it. If not then you can download a Partition Manager software (trail version link ) Using which you redistribute the data into different drives or Add/delete drives.

175gb missing from 250GB hard drive


Hi,

Appreciate the "Ask Me".

The only plausible explanation for the missing disk space would be the protected folder "System Volume Info".

Re-formatting would not restore your free space, however, re-partitioning would. May I suggest that you try PowerQuest Partition Magic. Of course like formatting, re-partitioning would completely delete the partition itself and would grant you back the entire disk space.

Unfortunately you can not use the same with the 1st partition since that is your active partition and presumably where your OS is residing. A workaround is to use another hard disk temporarily and transfer all the contents of partition 1 and make that eventually as your primary HD. Thereafter, re-partition again the entire 250Gb HD.

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.

I have 3 Hard Disk Drives and my C one is full and the other two are not how do i mack them all one Hard Disk Drives?


"mack them all one Hard Disk Drive"? do you mean make them into one Hard disk drive?

if you have 3 "physical" Hard Disk Drives, im sorry but thats not possible

but if the 3 Hard Disk Drives are only partitioned you could use any partition manager software like Partition Magic or Acronis Disc Director suite to combine the 3 Hard disk partition into one...

hope this helps

2nd partition disk drive D: is not accessible


Several brands now have the recovery software and backup of your computer on the D: partition.

You probably have XP (Vista doesn't try to stop you from viewing the contents of the drive). I would recommend using a 3rd party explorer clone to move the music files back to the C: and leave that partition alone. Also if you have not made your recovery discs yet do so before messing with the recovery partition.

On an HP or Compaq the recovery disc manager can be found under HP or under PC Help & Tools in the start menu.

SEAGATE HARD DISK DRIVE PROBLEM...


Hi,

I am venturing a guess, but it could possibly be your memory and not your hard drive.

Additionally, you can partition and format the 40Gb HD in a second PC using a third party utility such as Partition Magic which would also allow you to verify the integrity of the hard drive

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.

Booting


dear one

you have already used the HP Operating CD to set up your hard drive (and formatted your hard drive, and installed XP, and installed the drivers, and really don't want to do that again), you can still “fix” the partitions - as long as you have the space for Quickplay outside the XP partition.

1. Boot from you HP operating system disk.
2. Press ENTER to set up Windows XP
3. Press F8 to accept License Agreement
4. With your XP partition highlighted (it’s usually C:) press Esc.
5. Make sure you have at least 250MB of unpartitioned space after your XP partition. (If you don’t, you probably have to delete XP and start all over.) I had to delete the 204 MB partition I created in the first place.
6. Once you have your XP partition and at least 250 MB of unpartitioned space, press F3 to quit. (Don’t mess with the XP partition!)
7. Press F3 again.
8. Remove your HP operating system disk.
9. If you’re really fast, you can stick your Quickplay disk in before it reboots. Otherwise, let XP load, put in your Quickplay disk, and restart.
10. Quickplay should load successfully.
11. Note that when this is done, Quickplay will actually only use 204 MB of the space after your XP partition. It just needs more than that to actually run I guess.

oke
