i have samgsung 200hj (200gb).
I partition it with Xp disk and now it is showing that i have only 186 gb of total disk space.Actually i partition it two time. After first partition it was 190 gb and after second partition it is now 186 gb.
How can i format it in low level.I already tried with Partion Magic but it make it even worse now my E drive which is 70.1 gb makes my pc unstable(when i click E drive Explore hang for like 3 seconds then the drive open).
Please help me with that.
(Sorry for my BAD english)
ok perhaps backup all your data and reformat entire hd (due to the 32 bit interface on windows xp your total hd capacity will be divided so it's not that its missing its there
its a feature that xp reserves those 10 gb for user data)
you could try to reinstall xp on another partition a new one and your data will kept in a carpet called "win xp old"
Thank you guys for help me.
I m gonna buy 500gb Samgsung f3 soon.
BUt funny thing is that when i buy my machine that shop guy gave me 197 gb harddisk but after partition with xp disk i m loosing space.
