I recently set up a new 160 g WD HD using Data Lifeguard Tools, partitioning it into 4 40 g drives. I had it set up as slave to my old one. When I booted, all the drives showed up in My Computer. Then I used PC Inspector Clone Maxx to clone my old HD onto the first partition (D). Clone Maxx did not show each partitioned drive. It showed the 160 g as 128 g. Not being well-versed in computer technology, I went ahead and cloned it. After activating that drive and setting it up as master, it booted fine but no longer shows the unused partitions, even when I reset it as slave. It shows the 160 g HD as 40 g, the same as my old drive.
How do I reclaim the 3 40 g partitions? Someone suggested that I needed to format them, but I don't know how to do so when the OS does not see them.
I d/l Resize from zeleps, which is supposed to resize partitions without data loss, but I don't know that it would help this situation.
My OS is WinMe. Computer is Compaq 5108US.
