Hi cyrilsmith, welcome to TSG....

By chance was your hard drive set up for more than one partition? In my computer, do you see more than just the "C" drive? What's all there?

What OS are you using and did you FDISK it and set up partitions?

running fdisk from the command prompt will not erase any data, unless you change your partitions. This tool will tell you if there is any of your hard drive that is not partitioned properly.


http://www.pcabusers.com/fdisk.html is a tutorial on fdisk
