Following the major failure of my system a few weeks ago, I am now back to normal with one exception.
I have an extra 100 gb hard disk mounted internally, and is now recognised as drive D. It used to be recognised as drive F before the collapse. When the operating system XP was re-instated the properties for drive D was shown to be 37 gb. I carried out a reformat of the drive formatting as FAT 32 and when that was done there was only 2 gb available!!I have tried everything that I know to get it back to 100 gb without success.
Sorry for the delay as I had another complete system failure. Now sorted.My 100 gb hard disk now works to full capacity. I tried everything to get this sorted, without success, but today, I stumbled on the solution. Right clicked "My Computer" Selected "manage" Selected "storage" Selected "disk management" Found the D drive and dicovered there was one 2 gb formated partition. The other 98 gb was allocated but had no letter. I reformated this partition and low and behold it now works as H drive.
Thanks for your help and suggestions.
