I searched & know why theres a 127gb limit, but how do I fix it?
I've searched the forum, and maybe I'm asking it the wrong way, but I have a 160gb HD that windows is only reading as a 127gb. My problem is that removed my original 40gig HD and Replaced it with this one then installed a fresh copy of XP professional. I installed XP on the D: drive (a 5gig partition, but for some reason everytime I want to install a program, windows want to use the D: drive as the default instead of the C: drive which has all the room..but that's another problem). I was wondering, if I partition the C: drive using something like Partition Magic, will this free up the extra space that's not visible? Or is there a way to do it in windows XP.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, even if it's just a point in the right direction!
oh, and if you could also point towards a place that will tell me how to change the default drive where programs install this would be great....I recently, accidentaly installed a couple of games on my D: drive and was left with almost no space untill I deleted them (after having played about 45% of the way through)!
