A little hasty in closing a thread I had.

(Using KILLDISK I entered (Erase All Data) on C Drive, leaving D untouched?

I looked at my HD in Computer this morning and D drive is not showing, It was 111 GB in size.
C Drive I cant remember but it was half full.
Only 111 GB was showing in Computer on C Drive.

I went to Disk management and increased from 111GB to 140.29 as the option was there to expand.

I now have 106GB Free of 140GB showing in computer, Starting from factory settings I Loaded
the drivers and necessary software from samsung does this seem excessive.

The HD is a WD 2500BEVT 250GB SATA.

Looked in Bios and there is only one HD I ran Astra to confirm.
So was D part of C?

In Disk management partitions are shown healthy.

(10.00 GB EISA Configuration,)

(Page File 26.70 Primary Partition,)

(I.20 Primary Partition)

(52.41 Primary Partition)

(2.28 Primary Partition)

All Primary Partitions 100% Free Fault Tolerance NO, Overhead 0%.
There no options to shrink or extend any of them.

Sub Total of Primary and EISA partitions = 90.31 GB

(Total Including Primary, EISA, and C Drive = 2306GB.

20Gig Missing

The reason I ran KILLDISK was I loaded UBUNTU and it portioned and for mated a section for its self
I made a hash after down loading a program to Ubuntu and that's why I used KILLDISK.

Should read (Total Including Primary, EISA, and C Drive = (230.6GB.)

Due to the way windows counts a Gb 1058 and manufactures advertise a Gb 1000 then a "%0 Gb drives works out at 234Gb after formating.

I.E. when you buy a drive advertised at so many Gbytes expect to be able to use 93.125% of it in real terms.

Thanks for that, then all seems to be in order.

After running UBUNTU live I did some checking from UBUNTU on the HD.

It shows 11GB as Recovery Settings.

So this may be what windows shows as 10 GB EISA,
-------------------------------------------------
Computer shows 141 GB Free Space
UBUNTU 151 GB Free Space.

UBUNTU
89 GB Extended

Linux 56 GB Swap 2.4 GB
File System 29 GB 1.3 GB Swap

It looks as though when I ran Killdisk it left Linux on the HD, there is an option to delete the volumes and leave the 11GB alone.
Any comments would be appreciated.
