Use XP's Disc Management to view the properties of the partition, and possibly delete it and create a new one in it's place.
Or delete all (you'll lose the data that's on it, so copy that to a safe place before you do it) and create 1 big partition.
Or buy a program like Partition Magic and use that to edit the partitions while keeping your data (with 99% certainty).
Totally your choice.
Hello. I have an external usb hard drive with a 250GB seagate drive enclosed. There are 3 partitions:
- E (fat32, 30Gb capacity, 0% capacity remaining)
- F (not sure of file system type nor capacity (math say ~40gb))
- G (NTFS, 180gb capacity (40% capacity left)
When I connected the external drive to a pc that has windows 2000, I can access and navigate both E and G, but not F. When I try to get properties or navigate F:, the system just holds until eventually I kill the app that I was using (e.g. explorer, command prompt). I've tried fresh reboots and a few other things but no luck. I'm basically trying to see what is on the F: partition. At this point, I would love to be able to access/remove any data from the complete hard drive and reformat the whole thing. Any suggestions on how to understand and/or access the F: partition? Thank you.
