Ok, When I upgraded from 95 to xp I lost all my files on my D drive and it says I need to reformat plus, The Hard drive space is 1.8gigs when it should be 4.0 gigs. I reformatted, checked for disk errors, and repartioned. I Can not figure out how to get my 4 gigs back. By the way I had it partined into 4 drives with about 1 gig on each drive.

Please Help :tazz:

Your issue is that reformatting does not clear the partition tables. It only reformats the current partition. Right-click my computer either on the desktop or start menu. Select manage. Click disk management under the storage section. On the right side you should see you drive. From there you can right-click and delete the partition. Create a new one, format it, and assign it a drive letter.
