137GB on 250gb drive - Page 5

post #41 of 44
Nope, unless you want to start from scratch and remove or change you partitions etc. You can always use a partitioning utitly. The last one I used I think was from acronis. But I think it cost $$$

If you have a large main drive you might want to partition it, part for OS, apps and what not C:33% for OS D:66% for your files. That way when you do a fresh install without having to find a place to stash your file temporily.

Although I keep all my critical files on external hard drives that I can turn off, just in case I manage to screw something up.

LOL

Wow, who would've thought you had that amount of unallocated space to make up 137 formated space, mirroring this SP1 bug?

Yea you need service pack 2. A non-service pack version windows will only formatt to 137Gb. I had the same problem with my 320.

I had to update to SP2, and then formatt the 200+Gb partition So it would recognise as another partition.
