I have just had to do a complete reinstall of ME on a Tiny 1.7.P4 pc using the restoration (image) cd. Last did this 2 years ago with no problems however this time in my Comp the h/d is only seen as 30Mb not 60. I fdisked the drive using a ME EBD and it was shown as 60Mb (actually, 57239)and used just one partition as before. The install from image went ok and it loaded all drivers etc. When I checked with fdisk it showed the partition as 51%. I tried again and checked the partition size before installing from image cd again but with same results. I even tried two partions which showed up fine in fdisk but still only had the one in ME. The Pc is operating perfectly - using it for this but I want the full h?d size back. Any explanations please?
The first time I tried I set up one partition as I had done before so why it only saw half the size I do not know - I have done this many times on lots of PCs without having a problem. The second time I deliberately set two partitions but, as suggested, forgot to format the second as the restoration disk automatically formats the partition it is going on. I used fdisk again and set up the extended and logical partition then formatted and all was well. Thanks for responses.
I have just totally renstalled ME and all my applications and want to keep the hd as clean as possible. I have noticed that there are already about 8mb of files and folders in the C:\WINDOWS\TEMP folder. These include things like log files and afew with the TMP ext which I assume are ok to delete. However others are application extensions, DOS batch files,RTP & MTX files,word 2000 setup documents, some appliactions and some dll's. I suspect some are left there from when application setup programs are run. Is it safe to delete them all?
