(D:) drive - total size shrunk.Help needed


Recommended Posts

The (D:) drive on my PC has dramatically shrunk from 4GB to 1.3MB. It is the secondary drive.I think System Mechanic may have caused this. How can this be fixed? Would formating the drive work and if I did format it would the (C:) drive also by formatted as I don't want it to be. The (C:) is a NTFS system and the (D:) is a FAT.

I would not like to trust an unreliable hard drive with my data. I think you would be better off getting a new drive than trying to make that one last longer. A 4gb hard drive really isn't much storage. You can get a brand new 80gb drive for less than $50. :geezer:

you shouldve backup your drives and important files

but if you need drivers for your computer

post the make and model number of your computer here

someone will locate them

not sure what came with your computer so it would be nice to post any programs that came along with your computer

The files had already been wiped when the drive had shrunk to a total size of 1.38MB. All programs were on the (C:) drive and were unaffected.My computer make and model is a HP Pavilion t150.uk

 

 

Was your windows operating system on that hard drive?

 

No
