Solved Hard Drive Memory Question

Post by alepryor on Wed Jun 03, 2009 3:16 am

Hey!

I have a question regarding my laptop. The hard drive is 160 gigs. It is divided into half though. I have almost filled up one half, it says i am low on disk space. The other half is completely empty. Is it okay to access the other half? and how can I safely do that? Please help!

Thanks!

If the other half is not a recovery partition then yes, it's safe to use the other half.

Hello,

Recovery partition mostly have a disk capacity of about 10GB, I would like you to open explorer >> right click the disk and see the size of it.
