40 GB shown as 31/2 GB! Help plzLocked
Ok – i have been all over the net and still cannot sort out this problem.
About 1 month ago i needed to clean out XP so i decided to format. I formatted and when i went into the screen to setup the installation it showed it would install on a 32 GB partition.Its a 40 GB hd i have. So i installed and Windows displays it as a 31.4 GB HD.
I went to Sony site and downloaded a boot disk that partition. It worked and showed that i had 38 Gbytes but the format the boot disk used was really terrible and my Windows crashed consistenly.
I dont know what i can do. ive tried and reformatted at least 5 times and Windows still only recognises 31 GB. My system is currently running on NTFS…
any Partitioning Toolz that will recover the extra 7 GB ? ? ? its as if 7 GB was just stolen and XP only recognises 31 🙁
ALL help appreciated 😉
