    Hi,
    I have an 20gb h-drive (c) installed with 9,766.0mb allocated and 9,703.3mb unallocated. When trying to free up the wasted space by creating a fat32 logical device (e) partion it comes up with write error #49 when comming to the second job pending. I am new to this type of thing, can anyone help?
    I am running Win98se, athlon 475mhz porc, 128mb ram, two h-drives, local second h-drive label (d) 12.7gb.
    Thanks

    Try simply creating the partition then apply it and reboot..Then go in again and try to format it then aply it and reboot.

    Thanks for the reply mobo,

    I have been doing as suggested, it states 2 jobs pending, is this right? then gives me the error halfway through.
    Thanks

    Hi mobo,

    Nothing seems to work, though I did notice it said this will only work in BOOT MODE, I can find no reference to this in the help files.

    Once I have selected the unallocated space, I select create and select the relevent info, the following 2 jobs (always 2 jobs, even on just creating first) pending info is displayed as:

    1) creating partition *. (extended, extended volume, 9703.3mb on disk 1.)

    2) creating partition E: partition-2 (fat32,logical volume 9303.3mb on disk 1.)

    Whatever changes I make I always get the write error #49.

    Regards
    Kevin
