I reinstalled Vista and bwfore i started i had a 80GB H/D. Now i only have around 40 GB. Where has the other half gone and how can i get it back?

Did you format and install on the original partition?

  carol_s 22:27 15 Jul 09

Yeah i think so, but i think i may have deleted a split part of the drive by mistake. Can i get this back?

Right click computer > manage > disk management

What have you got in disk drives and there properties?

Hi cream i have
Disk 0 74.53 GB of which 24.15 is NTFS and 50.38 unallocated. Is this my missing bit?

  cream. 22:42 15 Jul 09

This is a partition. Do you want to merge it to C or keep it as a partition to store pictures, music and data?

  carol_s 22:43 15 Jul 09

I want to merge it please

right click the 24.15Gb section of the disk0 and select expand. See if it will take the unallocated space from the rest of the disk.

If it does not work, you might have to enable the unallocated section and shrink the volume before you can expand it to C.

If that is unclear post back, cos I ain't 2 sure myself;-))

i cant enable the unallocated space, it does not give me that option. But the other NTFS aprt will allow me to shrink volume.

  cream. 22:59 15 Jul 09

do you get when you right click the C drive i.e 24.15Gb

Also what options do you get when you right click the unallocated space. You should get something like enable new partition or something.
