    Hello,
    Is there a particular reason you need/want your drives divided up that way? I don't understand why some of your space is "dissappearing" either though. Let me know about your need/want for having it divided up in that manner? Did you use fdisk and format or did you use something like E-Z Drive(Western Digital) software to partition your drives?

    Yellowdog ;)

    well i wanted to use the divided drives for like movies, pics, anime n stuff. I used maxblast3 to partition the first drive (45 gb) then after that, i restart and theres around 160gb of unallocated space. i split them up evenly to 3 drives (I: J: K:) and format them. But when ever i reboot they dissappear.

    can u help me?
