    Lost Half Drive Space afer Un Install


    My Dell had a 250 Gb with XP installed. Loaded Suse 10.2 which partitioned it and gave me a dual boot - loved it wanted to change.

    Won't bore u with the reason but changed my hard drive for another, re installed, runs great.

    Problem came when I tried to get my 250 Gb back to normal. Deleted the disc partitions using Fdisk, re formatted and found myself with only 125 Gb. I'm assuming the other half is still under Linux but I can't see it.

    Help, how do I find the missing disc space

    Try running the Gparted LiveCD on it to see what shows up:

    It's a quick download (30 MB) and burn, and is a very handy tool to have around.
