    Hello! ......I'm in a spot of bother!::rolleyes:...have been trying to figure out HOW to get my unallocated space back?.
    the prob or rather dilemma is I have a 160 gb as a master (c) & a slave 80gb (d).. The 'c' drive it's showing TOTAL size 78 gb with apprx 63 free!.:blink......Now I'm gonna be honest here I have been using partition magic (full) with not to much success.. bla bla.... & also have acronis disk suite & likewise, me thinks I've made a mess of things (honesty for ya!)....so if any of you guys have a soloution to this problem that'll be great!....
    ...................................................................................................................................................In respect to the 'slave' same prob there saying its' a 40gb drive!..nuts....with a mere 37 gb spare these two
    'errors' that YEP! I HAVE created myself me thinks need to be rectified!!..:cry:there MUST be a way to redeem the initial & correct sizes for BOTH the drives to show up as normal if that's the word I'm looking for!
    thanx ........& thanx..................pps....forgot to mention on the 'c' drive there IS a recovery partition! to which is now approx 3.5 gigs ( but I'm happy for the recovery partition to stay there at that size?)...MMmmm
    that's it hope to get help sooooon......cheers........

    Which OS are you using? Are the drive partitioned as FAT or NTFS?

    I think his . key is stuck down and auto repeating. If he types really quickly he can get words in between the dots. :)

    Hello ..mr mathematix .......I'm using ntfs...running on xp pro (media) A bit of good news! after what seemed like day's & day's of TOIL! managed to get the master (c) showing the right size in gb's for the hd!..it will do as like I said before there is a 'recovery' partition ( usually they take up a quite a bit of room!).so in a nutshell just have to get the same result for the 80gb hd??.but I don't think there's any 'free space' to assign ? ...maybe you do have a few solutions?.. many thanx.....PS. have read the post sent in earlier directing me to the appropriate 'thread'........
