I would recommend that you download Easeus Partition Manager 3.0 Home Edition. Its a free application and has a very easy and intuitive interface which will allow you to resize or create logical partitions.

Im trying to factory restore my vaio what does "do

It means do you want to change the default factory partition size (ie. the size of the C Drive). I suggest you select No because you may have a Restore partition on the hard drive and if you change the partition size you may wipe out this Restore partition and you will not be able to do any future factory restores.

Changing partition on Verbatim 8Gb drive


You need to remove ALL partitions, define ONE partition, and then reformat as FAT32 for multiple system compatibility. there's a partition size limit for FAT3.If you hit the limit, then make TWO equal size partitions

Cannot change volume

Hard drive volumes are can be partitioned to adjust sizes.

The hard drive space that's available after device installation depends on two factors;

the actual manufactured size of the hard drive, and the number and size of the partitions created on the hard drive.

Partitioning a hard drive splits the total manufactured space into sections, each listed as a separate device by your computer's operating system.

It's used primarily as a method of turning larger hard drives into more manageable sections of storage.

There are times when the chosen partition size is no longer adequate to your needs.

You can quickly change the partition size of the drive using the administrative tools of your operating system when this occurs.

The data will remain intact and the newly sized partitions are instantly available for use.

Press the "Start" button located on the taskbar on the bottom of the Windows 7 desktop. Select the "Control Panel" from the Start menu to open the Control Panel window.

Type "administrative tools" into the search box of the Control Panel window.

Click on the Administrative Tools link revealed in the Control Panel window to open the Administrative Tools window.

Double-click on the "Computer Management" option listed among the Administrative Tools in the rightmost panel of the Administrative Tools window.

Select "Disk Management" in the Storage subcategory listed in the left panel of the window.

A display will appear listing all of the hard drives contained in your system and hard drive information, including the sizes of the current partitions contained on the drives as well as the available space of the drives.

Right-click on the drive partition you wish to change in the lower panel of the window. ''Choose a size option, either "Extend Volume" or "Shrink Volume."

Use "Extend Volume" to enlarge the size of the partition.

There is a limit to the maximum size of the partition, based on the amount of free space contained on the drive. Select "Shrink Volume" to shrink the size of a partition.

Select the new partition size and then select the "Enlarge" or "Shrink" button to complete the resizing process.

If you've already allocated all of your hard drive space to multiple partitions, you will have to shrink one partition on the drive in order to create free space for enlarging another partition.

The newly sized volume is immediately ready for use.

or you could use a third party software program,0.aspx



Hope this helps

Purchase or download a partition manager program.
The only way you can easily manage or change your partition size is to get a third-party program.

Partition Magic Freeware is the most widely known partition manager software.,0.aspx You can also download freeware programs such as Cute Partition Manager.

Open or run the partition manager.
In Partition Magic you can open the program easily. In Cute Partition Manager you may have to create a boot disk and boot from it to run the program. Once the program is open, select the drive you want to manage.
Go to the menu and choose an action or right-click and choose "resize." There will be an action -menu that will let you choose something like "resize" or "change hard drive size."

Some programs will also let you right-click on the graphical expression of a drive and choose the action or drag the graph to change the size.

Pick a new size for the drive and decide what you want to do with the remaining space. The rest of the space should be partitioned or formatted to make use of it if the current partition is downsized.

Apply the changes by clicking "apply" or "OK." You will then have to reboot the computer for the changes to take effect. The program may automatically do this for you or it simply may direct you to do it.

Low disk space on C drive while lots of disk space on the d drive

Does the D: drive have an Operating System on it?
Can you compress the info on your C: Drive? That would in effect give you more room. Odds are that your D: Drive only has the "Restore" files on it and is best not messed with.

There are ways to recover files from formatted hard drives but to recover the entire recovery partition is not likely.

Please contact Lenovo here to order recovery discs

Long periods of hard drive activity

Most likely, it could be the amount of ram you have in your computer. If your running low on ram and it is using the virtual memory your computer can be running all the time causing a slow down in whatever you do. Check to see how much ram you have :)

One key problem

If i were you i would go get a new key board. And you cant change the partitions of a hard drive around. Once they are there, you can delete them or add more but never move them around. Get a new key board. Good luck.

Total size is not 80 GB IDE Hard Drive


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.
