Hey folks,

I'm running XP right now on a laptop HP. My C: drive is 80gb, which should be represented as "Total Size: 74.5gb" in My Computer. But right now for "Total Size" it says it only has 61.5gb. I feel like I'm being robbed out of 15 gigs.

I tried seeing if my system restore size allotment got changed but it is still the same at 1% (1 gb.) Any suggestions as to how to expand the total size back up to 74.5?


probably a hidden HP partition there. I wouldn't get rid of it unless you absolutely know what you're doing

You could try reading the documentation that came with your computer (Radical, I know).
Or: Right click My Computer/Manage/Disk Management.
Look at the C drive and see how it's partitioned.
