I'm a bit unsure of how the hard drive is divided, and what each partition is doing. When Win Explorer open, it shows C drive (67Gb) and D drive (66.9Gb). However, on expanding the drives, ie in the left hand panes, D drive says 'empty'
Having now downloaded Easus Partition Manager, it shows what apparently looks like 4 partitions, and I assume one of them is the Recovery (15Gb, of which 7Gb is used). When adding up the Gb showing in EPM it suggests a 250Gb drive but I have seemingly only got 66Gb accessible.
I'd like to re-organise the drive/partitions, so that I have increased storage for general use, and the Recovery partition.
Can you help me achieve this, please? As ever, I'll be very grateful for your help :)
I don't seem to be able to create a link to an image, for some reason no icon to click on to do this. Will try in next post
Personally I would leave well alone. It's a manufacturers system allowing you to restore and create a latest restore, saving up to date recovery. You have 52 Gig on the C:\ drive and 59 Gig on the D:\ drive free. The hidden partitions are hidden for a reason.
Whatever you decide, if you get the option, create restore discs before you think of playing about with the partitions, is my humble advice.
It's a bit late at night now, but will study that tomorrow as am puzzled why there are two samsung recovery sets, unless the one on D: is a type of backup. Others will hopefully join in with their better knowledge.
In the meantime, as per rdave13 advice on your other thread - get the proper Samsung Restore DVD's burnt before you do anything else. Then if everything gets messed up and F4 doesn't work you can use those to restore to factory fresh state (as it was when first started up)
