Hi
I have a 300gb external WB hard drive which I used a program to try & clone my 120gb hard drive & failed!
I now have a F drive with 102gb and a G Drive with 8gb!!!!
How do I reformat the drive to get it back to just one drive of 300gb???
Help

i'm little bit confuse here.....let me try and explain what I understood. U wanna clone a system and restore in different HD.

Use imaging tools like Norton ghost for cloning the HD....

on second one just use ur o/s bootable cd/dvd and deleted all partition and u got one drive or u can use partition tool.

You should be able to go into computer management and do everything there.
Right click on each partition and choose "delete partition" or "delete logical partition".
After that, another right click should give you a "format".
