Specs: Windows XP
hi. when i had to have my hard drive re formated recently the guy who fixed it said he put a partion on the drive. However i cant find it. It may sound naive but shouldn't it be visibile when i click on "my computer".
appreciate any help in finding it.

If he created another partition, it should show up in My Computer. Go to Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Computer Management / and click on Disk management and see what's listed there.

Technically you are seeing a partition. You can't install WinXP without first partitioning and formatting the hard drive. That said, the tech probably meant they made TWO or more partitions on the drive. As stated above you should be able to see it in Disk Management. Unformatted space is not assigned a drive letter so it won't show in My Computer.
