I have a 500GB hard disk in my PC, but only one partition of around 40GB size. The rest of the disc is unformatted.
I extended the partition, when I started running out of space for the media center features of Vista, but found that I couldn't record - I <think> this is because I had extended the partition, but into disk space which was unformatted. Does that sound right?
I assumed that when extending the partition, the added space would be formatted at the same time, but it seems not.
I subsequently shrunk the partition back to the original size.
So, can anyone give me step-by-step advice on how to extend my partition and end up with usable space?
