I have more details to add. When I checked the properties of the drive after formating, it was showing that 70MB used, it should have shown 0 bytes used. What is that 70 mb. I cannot see any file even after un-hiding. How can I get back my full hdd space back.
I got a HDD 40GB from a friend of mine. He had Novell in it. When the drive is connected as master, it starts Novell and repeatedly searches for Novell boot from floppy and CD. I wanted to have windows in that drive and I have connected this drive to another system as a slave and formatted it completely. Now the disk shows that it is empty. My question is, is my process of formatting a Non Windows Drive correct. If not, please guide me to a correct Cnet Tips n Tricks page.
