I have just received a new laptop. Whilst it was setting up it asked the question 'did I want to partition the drive' I adjusted the volume to two partitions.
Problem now is I have four partitions. One small one with the back up files. Two small ones totalling 50GB and one 450GB empty that I cannot access. My computer hard drive is now virtually full.
I am trying a Windows install and it is requesting where I want to install to. Trouble is it will not show the 450GB partition on the options, and there is no room on the other partitions.
Where do I go from here?
Yes it looks like all that is usually on the C drive has filled the 40GB allocated to that and some files to the 10GB 'E' drive. The 450GB partition says unallocated. So how do I allocate the empty space and give it a letter, if that is what I have to do.
I have tried doing a re-install, but it has not changed the drive space.
On initial boot sequence of new laptop (Windows 7), after all the usual language settings etc, a box opened asking whether I wanter to partition the drive. I clicked '2 partitions' and set the percentage volumes. When the system had finished loading, it stated 'E' drive was almost full. when I checked 'computer properties' it showed 'C' as only having 40GB and 'E' having 9.77GB.
Obviously it was asking me, did I want to partition the 'C' drive further, but it did not make that clear.
