Disk Partition Reversed Tags: Hard Drives Partition Seagate Windows XP Storage Last response: March 22, 2010 5:20 PM in Storage Share Bud C March 22, 2010 2:40:21 AM 4 partitions (1,2,3,4)were created on a 40GB Seagate on one PC with PQ Magic. On a second PC, that same drive XP Disk Manager shows the partition sequence as (1,3,4,2). Any idea why? BudC More about : disk partition reversed sub mesa a c 127 G Storage March 22, 2010 3:17:33 AM Are they primary or logical partitions? Are you sure the partition drive letters matches the physical order of the partitions? Posting a screenshot of your partition setup would help in this case. Lastly, is there any reason you want four partitions on a 40GB drive? With such a small drive, i recommend using only one partition as you're forcing your HDD to fragment. m 0 l chickenhoagie March 22, 2010 5:20:30 PM I don't think it really matters what order they appear as, as long as they are labeled as all being there and all data is in tact. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
