Hi all...just replaced my PC with a Dell optiplex and the hard drive shows a size of 10GB in My Computer although it's actually 20GB on looking at the actual Maxtor drive in the PC. I think this has been partitioned in the past.How do I un partition to get the full 20GB back. Cheers. Gawsworthboy
you can remove the partition using the XP disc cant remember exactly how,its either in the repair option or the format option not exactly sure at work at the moment so unable to search but have used it to partition & undo partition in the past.hope this helps you
Hi all, seems too much messing about and I suppose it's OK to have 2 "Drives" although the unallocated partition is not showing as an accessible drive...it has no drive letter assigned. How do I use this extra 9.0GB and how do I assign a drive letter so it shows up in My Computer? Gawsworthboy
does the drive show on my computer as 2 seperate drives if so then you can format it there choosing either NTFS or FAT32 when i partitioned my hard drive it only formatted the C:/ drive on installation and i had to format each partition in my computer to get them to work.
Hi reaths, no it only shows one drive "C" in My Computer with a volume of 9.75GB. I dont know how to access the partitioned part of the hard drive to assign a drive letter?? Will I have to format the entire drive again? Gawsworthboy
