New Hard Disk - second problem

  hml 17:20 09 Jun 2007

Although it is successfully installed, when I was loading the operating system to my new hard disk a screen came up offering me the opportunity to partition the disk. I remember being told that partitioning is good so I said "yes" and created a 100gb partition out of my 320gb disk. My problem now is that the computer only seems to recognise the disk as being 100gb. How do I access the other 220gb?

Right-click My Computer and chose Manage. Click on Disk Management and you'll see your new drive in the right pane. Right-click on the unpartioned area and you get a menu where you can create a partition and quick format it.
