Free hard disk space more than disk capacity!

  Bantam007 22:04 16 Apr 03

Since fitting an 80 Gig HD my PC running windows 98 keeps telling me I have silly amounts of free disk space as much as 2.5 terrabytes on one occassion! Anyone got any ideas what the problem is?

Formatted Hard disk into partitions of less than 32Mb each, no further problem.

Bantam007 - - blimey, that took some solving , almost 10 months :-)
I'm sure you didn't need to do this but hey, it ain't gonna hurt - my largest disc is 60gb and although partitioned, the largest partition is 50gb - -my system w98se too.

PS - and a lesson to us all - -come back and tick 'em

I'm not surprised it took some time - formatting an 80Gb hard drive into 32mb partitions :-))
