Question about PC Laptops
Hello, I run a desktop & laptop. The desktop has 40GB storage, it has much more data stored and about 20GB free), the Laptop has only a small amount of data and a 60GB hard disk, but only has 4GB free. How can I get the lost space back? I have already un-installed several programs and deleted lots of data, but I still have lost of GB space unused that I cannot access. Please can someone help, I regularly defrag and clean my hard disks. thanks, Xavier
While not cheap, Spinrite from GRC was my choice for HD problems of most kinds while I was still doing service.
It isn't cheap but it can perform seeming miracles on problems such as yours.

You wouldn't be able to use it as a primary drive in a
laptop, you could in a desktop, but you would require and IDE to SATA adapter.
But even then, I still wouldn't bother because the drive would be too slow.
You would be able to use it as external storage via the means of an IDE to USB cable. It still wouldn't be as quick at accessing data as today's modern external storage devices, so again that's why I wouldn't bother. But you could if you really wanted to.
