Unallocated hard drive? What to do? Tags: Hard Drives Laptops Disk Management Storage Last response: January 26, 2013 6:40 PM in Storage Share halueryphi January 26, 2013 4:47:46 AM Alright, so I purchased a laptop awhile back and was looking at my disk management page and noticed this. What should I do with Disk 1? Should I leave it unallocated? Because I could really use the space to record movies on fraps. Is it possible for me to use? Thanks!
