I had the PC shop reformat my pc a awhile ago. In My Computer you see only one drive,C.
But at this very moment I am running Active File Recovery (for Windows)and it is reporting 6 partitions
in only 40 GB and the drive is around 4 times that size. How can I discover and make use of those
partitions, or is that not exactly what it means? THanks

Are you running 98 or XP?

Lets take a look at the drives and partitions.

Go to start
Go to run
Type in compmgmt.msc
Click on OK
On the left side under storage...click on disk management.
Make sure the right side showing the drives is expanded so we can see it all.
Take a screen shot showing the drives and partitions.

Attach it to your reply.
