Missing Partition

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I just installed Vista on my new hard drive and made a partition on my WD 500Gb. One of 60Gb for vista another of 200Gb leaving another 200Gb. However in explorer i can only see two, the 60Gb i made and the other 200Gb i made, but not the other rest of the disk i.e. the other 200Gb. What should I do?

Have you formatted all the sections? It won't show up till it is formatted.

well, probably.
however, if it doesn't i believe u should be looking for some partitioning utilities (Supporting Vista) then
e.g Disk Director it will recover ur partition and i guess u even won't need to format them (btw how did u partitioned HD, did u use any partitioning utility or just vista built-in tool?)

Unparitition space won't show up. You could always boot from the vista DVD again and make the unpartition space a 200GB partition, but not install windows on it. Then go into windows and it should be there.

There might be a easier way to do it, but thats how i've always done it.
