"Was the drive partitioned and formatted prior to installing into this computer?"
It was formatted but i dont remember partitioning it.
Ahhh for some reason the drive has appeared with everything on it. However, i think this may have happened in the past. I assume (90%) this problem will happen again when i shut down and start it up in the next few days.
Theres 47GB unallocated space on the 'drive that goes missing'. Is there any way to recover this 47gb of unallocated space without formatting my whole disk drive? I could may be move half the content onto other drives but i don think i have enough for the whole content.
Do you think only having 300MB of free space is causing the drive to go missing then?
Its a secondary drive. I assume that wouldn't be a problem would it?
As for what utility i used to format the drive with i think it was with windows xp. Either through DOS (XP CD) or in windows itself. Its hard to remember considering it was a small task and it was around 4-5 months ago
