Download Maxblast click here and see what it says. I would suspect that the partition wasn't set up correct up initially. Are you 100% certain that you set up the partitions 30gb and 170gb?

Yes i am certain it was done correctly,it was done by my teacher at college.I have checked with MaxBlaster and it says the same.

It appears the partition is not set up correctly as your comments suggest:
"Partition Basic Healthy(UnknownPar)92gb"

Therefore 92gb is not partitioned. Your teacher may have acciedently done a 30Gb and 70Gb as oppose to 170Gb you state.

However, you should note that when you actually buy a 200Gb drive that is not the full size of the drive.

1024Kb actualy makes up a 1mb and harddrive manufacturers tend to round it off to 1000Kb. Therefore you lose the 24kb out of every meg of data. Multiple that by 200 gives you 4800kb equivalent to about 4.5Gb - 5Gb that us consumers lose out on :(

With the 92gb unpartitioned space you can either format that and have it as a third drive. OR format it and redistribute the free space to the 65gb partition.

Hope this helps
