Hi. Hope someone can help here. I don't know what I've done but...........
I have a 140gb Sata hard drive which I use as a secondary drive for documents, photos, music etc. Problem is I can't use it all. There's only 14gb usable space. The rest shows up, in computer management, as free space with a bright green bar above it.
When I right click, to use the new logical disk manager, it goes through to the end then puts up a message saying:
Logical Disk Manager. An unexpected error has occured. Check the System Event log for more information on the error. Close the Disk Management console, then restart Disk Manager or restart copmputer.
I've tried both but it does the same again. System Event log gives the date and time of the event, Source says LDM, Category says none, Event says 2. I've no idea what this all means.
I know I need to make a logical partition but I don't know how.
I'm running XP service pack2 fully updated. The Sata drive was formatted NTFS previously and was usable.
It only shows as 14gb in the bios too.
As I've said I can't remember what happened to create this situation.
I must have blinked the first time I used the Seatools. I gave it another go, last night, and spotted a list of stuff I was supposed to type a number in so that the programme knew what to load. Did that this morning and, voila, I have the full drive formatted and working.
Thanks for the help Totally-braindead.
