Thread: F Disk




  1. #1

    Default

    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

    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
    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.
