unknown partition on xp after clone
i needed more hard disk space, so i cloned a 10 gig hard drive to a 20 gig hard drive. i booted up with my 250 gig as slave and my 20 gig as master. it booted up fine, and i had 10 gigs free space. the only problem is, my 250 gig (D) wasn't there. so i went into administrative tools
after going into the disk manager i saw that the western digital 250 was there, but aparently it was an "unknown partition (healthy)", which is weird cuz BIOS recognizes it and partition commander sees it as NTFS and can access the files, and i scanned it with SMART and partition manager and it's apparently fine, but windows doesn't recognize it right
i think im gona buy a hard drive enclosure and see if windows sees it fine through that. will that work, or are there alternatives, or what??
i got the hard drive enclosure and windows does pretty much the same thing. it works with different hard drives too.
