Hey guys
My friend and I were kind of experimenting with various programs and we encountered an error saying there was a problem with the external hard drive, we would have to reformat and resize the drive. We did this and while reformatting my friend somehow managed to shrink the virtual disk space from 112GB to 46.5GB, it also fails to format properly. What I really want to know is if there is a way to reverse the shrinkage. I run an XP home (SP2) machine, the External is a Freeagent GO 120GB and we used Partition Magic. Any help much appreciated people, running out of space...
