New build. Installed vista X64 and made a few partitions on a 500GB HD. I only see three of the four partitions I created, I am missing about 150 GB of storage. I also have a second HD that was formatted with XP. I do not know if that is causing a problem.

I created a total of 4 partitions not including the second HD

Any ideas on how to fix this or what I did wrong?

Hi there,

Can you show us the information for the partitions?

EG:

Hard Drive 1
  • 1x 100GB
  • 2x 50GB
  • 1x 75GB
Don't forget you'll probably only have about 465GB of usable space, after formatting.

Cheers

Troy

Okay do this for me please:

  • Right-click Computer and select Manage. You will need to allow the UAC prompt that appears.
  • Click Disk Management
Either take a screenshot and attach, or accurately describe what you can see here, with as much detail as possible.

Cheers

Troy

Hello,

The unallocated space means that there is no partition created and that the drive is still in RAW format which is not recognized by Windows. Right click on that area and create a new Simple Volume. From there format it to NTFS and you should have your space back.

Cheers,
Mak
