Hello–I am trying to reuse a hard disk fomr my computer that the motherboard crashed on about two years ago!
It ias a seagate 120 gig internal (7200.7). I have removed it form the box (which has since been disposed of).
I put it into an enclosure to see if I can reformat–problem is that it shows as two drives (k:) and (j:)…
It shows the k: (originally HP recovery) as only 5 gigs,
and the J: (originally HP) as only 13.6 gigs.
I have reformatted “both” drives, but still shows only the above values for size…
properties reveal that the j: drive has a 5.54gig capacity and 5.4 gigs available; also reveals that k: only has has 13.6 available
What gives?? How can I reformat so that:
a. I lose the partition and this becomes one drive;
b. I can use the capacirty of the drive (120gigs)?
