when doing a re-install of my system, usually to boost performance and clear space I usually use fdisk. However due to a very unstable system when using win 98 setup I ended up with an extra partition and my second 80GB drive was only seen as 12MB. fdisk could not fix my problem so I used a downloaded copy of some partitioning software. I would prefer to use fdisk on the drive but it will not see its proper capacity anymore, is this because I used the other software ? can it be put right by fdisk ?
