Accidentally deleted partition

While reinstalling Windows XP, I accidentally selected to delete the partition of the external Seagate hard drive, thinking it was a partitioned part of the C drive used for recovery. I tried to use Partition Manager 2005 and 2009 to undelete the partition, with the assistance of Paragon tech support. It has not worked, yet. They suggested removing the hard drive from the case and connecting it directly to the computer, then running the recovery program of Partition Manager. Do you have any suggestions?

Mode not supported on Samsung TV after new desktop hard drive installed


If you read through your HDTVs manual you will find that it only supports FAT32 ~ maybe also NTFS.
Mac OS Extended Journal (HFS+) is a proprietary file system and even a Windows PC can't read it without the appropriate tools or drivers installed ~ let alone a TV.
I'm afraid you will have to reformat your Hard Drive
* This will delete all data on the drive
1. open up Disk Utility (/Applications/Utilities/)
2. select your external drive ("1TB WD Elements" or whatever it is called)
3. click on the Partition tab
4. select the following settings:
Partition Layout: 1 Partition
Format: MS-DOS (FAT)
the name will change to "UNTITLED" but you can change it to whatever you want
click the Options button at the bottom and select "Master Boot Record"
When everything is set click Apply at the bottom right.
Again, this will delete all data from the drive so you will want to backup it beforehand.

Tried to partition drive using disk mgr in windows xp sp2, won't allow a right click to partition into 2 (1) one tb partitions


Delete any existing partition on the drive.
Be careful! This will delete any "data" files on the disk-drive!

Then, you should be able to create an "extended" partition, with two "logical" drives inside that "extended" partition.

You will have to "destroy" the data that is on the disk... If that is ok then:

1. Right-click "My Computer" and select "Manage" from the drop-down menu.
2. Select "Disk Management"
3. A graph of the disks in the computer will appear.
4. Go to "Full Screen" (maximize your window).
5. Find the Seagate disk (may be marked "Unknown").
6. If you are absolutely sure that this is the Seagate out of the Sony PS3 .. .then right-click on the graph that represents the Seagate and "Delete Partition" (The system will not allow you to delete your boot drive partition.
7. Once it has been deleted, you can "Create Partition" (choose "Primary" partition) and do not use a fast (quick) format.
8. You probably know the rest.... (Create drive, FAT32, etc.)

Hope this is what you want...

Seagate drive partition


This is fairly straightforward using the Windows XP tools.

IMPORTANT, copy everything you want to keep from partition F otherwise it will be deleted. Drive G will not be affected.
  • Right click 'My Computer' >'Manage' then click disk Management.
  • Right click your drive F and 'Delete Partition'.
  • You now have 210GB unused space on the drive.
  • Right click the unused space and "Create Partition".
  • Specify the size of the new partition to your requirements or create more partitions until the free space runs out.
  • You can then right click and format the new partitions. 'Quick Format' is fine unless you have been experiencing disk problems.
To swap around drive letters in Disk Management:-
  • Right click the drives and 'change drive letters', to X, Y or Z or whatever
  • Now you can change the drive letters back to F, G, H or whatever order you want them in
I'm sure you get the idea, you just have to change the letters of the drives to unused letters to make a space in the sequence (not that any sequence really matters)

Good luck
