Im facing problems with my hard disk drive. It has 20 gb space in it, but it only shows 10 gb space under my computer, but it still shows 10 as unallocated space. So, what should I do to free my 10gb space?

Use qpmagic to add another partion on the unused space or remove the one you have and make one big primary. Also remember that FAT might not handle those sizes so NTFS for windows n format everything afterwards. :tazz:

FAT32 will handle 20GB in a single partition, if thats what you're using.
FusionFX is right in general though. If you just want to create a second partition in the unallocated space, you should be able to use XP's disk management. If you want to extend the size of the first partition to fill the remaining space without losing your data, then use partition magic.
