It has a 120gb hd but only 90 is available I have what looks like 2 versions of XP installed aswell How can i find out whats on the HD and remove what i dont want and remove the other XP operating software ?
all depends on if the files have been protected by passwords or not, if they haven't plug it into another pc with XP on and scoot around it
Also if you can do that, use the Administrator Tools too to format afterwards but failing that, Fdisk is there but it'll make whatevers on the disk beforehand making it unreadable as you'll alter boot sector headers.
This is because the industry uses 1000bytes rather than 1024bytes to a kilobyte/megabyte etc. Hence the actual capacity in real gigabytes is always less than the claimed size. These days, with large capacity drives, it's becoming a pretty serious issue IMO. I have a 400GB drive that's actually 372GB, and a 320GB that's ony 297GB - thats a large chunk missiing from the advertised size.
