Hello all, not a big problem [if at all].
My father (77 yrs young and very independant) inisited on installing 98se on a new hard drive, which is 20 GB.
In doing so he created a partition of 5 gb in [ I presume] F Disk.
The other 15 GB of course "dissappeared" :eek:
I'm trying to talk him into letting me put XP pro on for him.
I presume I can then take the option again and let it recognize the whole 20 GB.
However, he is comfortable with 98SE and if I'm unable to convince him, is there a way to "retrieve" the 15 GB???, within 98 SE.
Thanks fellas
:cheers:

Yes just go back into Fdisk and reclaim the rest as an extended partition and fill it as a logical drive. As for XP if he don't want it then don't force it on him or it could be the biggest mistake you ever make. :smokin:

Many thanks fellas :clap:
The ole bugga is hard to talk around, hehe. I reckon if his memory retention was as good as it used to be he would be running rings around us all with these contraptions.
Once again Thanks.
