Question about the partitions on my HARD drive

My hard drive is divided as follows:

(1) 1.46 GB recovery Active
(2) 455 GB C: primary partition
(3) partition primary gb 9,27

If the partition of 1.46 GB ensures recovery system (such tiny disc?), what the gb 9.27 partition for?


Hmm, I think that 3) gb 9.27 primary partition contains also the Toshiba recovery system files.
The point is that you can create the recovery disk using the preinstalled Toshiba Recovery creator tool. This tool could create image contain the Win 7 32 bit and 64 bit OS.
I think that the 10 GB are necessary so that

What do you think of this?

  • Satellite Pro C660 - 21(d): question about the partitions on the HARD disk


    I just started using my new satellite pro c660 - 21 d

    My office has drive c, d, u, s
    C either windows 7, Vista D
    The drive U is 342 meg in size

    I didn't have the disk in two 230 gig drive so thoughtless narrowed C drive of 70 GB and D drive with 10 gig (it's the primary recovery partition

    I have now two empty partitions of 170 Gig (from c drive)
    and 214 Gig (from d drive)
    But windows will only allow me to add one as a disc of the user
    He says may not have more than 4

    The reason for being there is a partition of Active recovery without letter.

    I can't unshrink drive C or drive D then I went with 170 GB of unused space.

    I guess that a solution would be to lose the data disk 10 gig that contains the recovery software but then I don't have a backup.

    Suggestions as to what I could do to work around this problem.

    I am now under the Create recovery disks (2 of them) so maybe I could remove one of the partitions after.

  • Question about the partitions on satellite Pro L300-164

    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 and it came with vista on the 1 74 GB partition and a data partition 73 GB but it has a folder called HARD drive recovery, but I want Vista to all of the 140 gb and have the recovery partition on a small partition of 4 GB for HARD drive recovery.

    Is this possible without mucking up the HARD drive recovery?

    No, is not possible, but that you can and should do is create recovery DVDs.
    After doing this, you can remove this folder and organize partition how you want it to be.
    Remember that you will lose the ability to install the operating system from the disk using F8 and repair my computer option.

    If a problem occurs, you can install Vista using this recovery DVDs.
    Please note: after installation of recovery, you will have the same structure divides again and all your saved data will be gone.

    I have this drive in my mind:

    Hope someone can understand my question and help me...


    As far as I know, this unit was delivered with a 30 GB HARD drive.
    In my opinion you unity might work with a 40 GB 60GB but I n t think that the BIOS recognizes a 100 GB HARD drive.
    I think that it of not possible to use a 100 GB on this unit.

    HARD drive merchants offer a BIOS change. After this change, it should be possible to use a bigger HDD. But these procedures are not supported by Toshiba and it is possible that you will lose coverage.

  • Help to remove the partition on a hard drive and data recovery

    I have two hard drives in my PC, the C: drive is 80 GB, and the F: drive is 120 GB.  The second drive (120 GB) is divided into two partitions.  I just deleted the partitions and makes the hard drive again in a single disc, however I had some important files on the F: drive that I thought I had copied to the C: drive but they are not there.  Is there anyway that is using the software I can return the drive to two drives and recover my data, please help


    First of all, do not use the hard drive. This can make things sunk. A few things may already be unrecoverable. I would even delete the drive letter to stop inadvertently automated processes to use.

    There are two ways I can think of.

    1. buy a partitioning software disk that supports the undelete partition. On windows XP PartitionMagic was a very good product if symantec will still sell it. Given that Symantec has continued to develop, I had to switch to product partition Paragon. Sound was trash to some things, cloning in particular a double boot with loads of partitions - it has an undelete function which I didn't use. The fact that you have created a new partition could mean that the restoration may not work. You may need to delete the current, probably empty, partition everything first and then perform the restoration.

    2. buy a data recovery software that will scan the hard drives, including the unpartitioned space. I chose R-Studio and it was very good stuff even recovery from hard drives that fail. It was not 100% effective, but it is perhaps down to the severity of failure rather than the product. In situations like yours, it was very effective.

  • Portege R100: Question on the maximum size of HARD drive


    I understand the internal player on the R100 is an ATA5 (Enhanced IDE), I've only used the IBM (now HGST) readers, they do a decent-sized on ATA6 disc, I guess, it will take the player that will support ATA5 as the controller on the R100 is ATA5 only.

    As for the size, what is the maximum size can I ride in this unit?

    The orginal is 5.4 width x depth x 7.9 height 8 mm. Can I assume all 1.8 inch drive will fot or is it a mine field?

    Thank you very much


    AFAIK the R100 was delivered with a 30GB and 40GB HDD.
    I found an info that the hard drives are compatible:

  • Cannot change the letter of the partition of my hard drive even with regedit


    I have an annoying problem that I can not get rid. I have 2 hard disks that are exactly the same, just the second was purchased later.

    I used one with the letter F: until one day I connected the secondary hard drive. Since that day, my first hard drive has changed his letter. I did 2 things:

    (1) I tried to go to the computer, disk management, changed the letter but F: wasn't available.

    (2) delete \DosDevices\F: in MountedDevices using the registry editor, as explained here.

    But when I restart the computer, F: / is still not available and \DosDevices\F: still exists.

    What can I do?

  • Can not resize the partition to external hard drive

    I have a LaCie D2 Quadra 1 TB external drive that I used occasionally since 2009. Way back when I partitioned into two parts, the two put in place under Mac OS X extended (journaled). I put one in 867 ~ GB and the smallest to 133 ~ GB. The smallest one I use for a bootable backup.

    I want to increase the size of the bootable part. DiskUtility looks that would, without erasing any data. But even once I selected for the largest part smallen (without going into the blue "in use" section) I can't always increase the size of the bootable. The grabber resizer indicator seems pointless because it won't pull up. (It's in the lower corner of R).

    I made sure property allows me to read and write on both partitions.

    I will be grateful for a solution.

  • Tecra M3 - questions about the RAM maximum and graphics driver update

    Hi people,

    I have a Tecra M3 (Variant FBCF with the Geforce 6600 w / 128 MB) and I have two questions that I hope someone here can help me with:

    (1) what is the maximum amount of RAM that I can install here? The manual says 2 GB (2 x 1 GB), but I do not see why the laptop would be paralyzed this necessary way, cause as far as I know the 915G chipset can handle 4 GB of RAM. If anyone knows definitively what?

    (2) the latest drivers from nvidia for XP are 2005. As most of you probably know, nvidia systematically more than past performance with versions driver and adds compatibility with some games that end up in trouble. The real driver from the nvidia site does not install because it says that it cannot find any compatible hardware. Can't Toshiba even a pilot updated annually? There is a driver of 2007 for Vista, I can't believe that if they did, they decide refresh the XP one while they were to him. Any chance of their audience on this here? I could force the driver to install, but I don't think that it's necessarily a great idea.

    Thank you!


    the maximum amount specified for this machine memory is 2 GB and 4 GB not but you can try it with 2x2gb modules.

    With regard to your graphics: Don t use the nvidia driver since it is not suitable for mobile graphics chipsets and has no timing in the driver that is needed to run flawlessly.

    I'd rather you to view laptopvideo2go and download some drivers here. :)

  • Question about the recovery partition


    I have a question about the recovery of HARD drive partition.

    If I do the operation to clear the hard disk option in the wizard it will remove * all * or it will keep my partition recovery in this way I can come back later. I want to know because I would like to put on a different OS.

    I know he said he would, but caution in the PDF, I found it says that on a normal recovery too (that he would remove each partition) and I'm a little confused about how the recovery actually worked.

    Thank you.

    Hey Buddy,

    To be honest I n don't know what you mean exactly with this option to erase.

    In General, Toshiba Recovery disk will wipe your entire HDD to restore factory settings correctly. This means that if you start from that disk and follow the instructions on the screen, everything will be removed.

    In addition, the recovery disk doesn t create a recovery partition. It is not available. Disk copy just the files on the second partition in folder HDDrecovery to start an installation of HARD drive recovery.

  • A few questions about the management of the partitions when you perform a recovery

    Hello everyone,

    I bought a L505-13Z on weeks there are for personal use and editing of audio work light. In these two weeks, I took the time to explore and test the performance of this computer and judged suitable for my needs because it resists even havier audio work so I'll need, what it is tested. I am really satisfied with this laptop! In any case, some optimizations I did for audio software suffered a few necessary features of the computer, so I need to reinstall the operating system... Basically, I was always used to install only the system drive wiping system, leaving the score of "D: Data" intact. I noticed that this is not the case with the recovery of the system, because after the restoration, system partitions and data disappeared. of course everything is saved on an external drive, but every time I have to restore, I need to copy everything back from the backup drive? I missed the point of this - it's exactly like having all my data saved on the system partition. What, then, is the need for the data partition?

    Is there a way to recover and leave intact the partition 'Data'?

    My second question is if it is possible to change the size of the partitions somehow? I think it's a bit pointless to have 230G of free space for the system partition. 100G is sufficient for my needs, and I could use the 130G remaining for the data partition, I don't know why the drive is simply divided into two by default... (I am aware that a change of size of partition must erase all data on the disk).

    Thank you all in advance for any help!

    If you use the procedure of recovery disc HARD - - structure and the data on the second partition will not be deleted.
    So, if you want to install OS using HARD drive recovery option you can move all the important data of the C partition to D partition.

    The whole HARD disc will be deleted if you use recovery DVD for installing the OS.
    You should not change the partition structure because it can have a negative influence on the recovery procedure more HARD drive. It can happen that data recovery will be will be more found.

    Please note: second partition D is not a kind of system partition or recovery. This is normal and usual HARD disk partition. He is saved just Toshiba recovery image in the folder called HDDRecovery.
    You can do it, I did too, it is better to enter the properties of this file and set it as invisible.

    You will not be irritated by this file. It's there, but you can not see and there is no way that you can remove it somehow. Use this partition as usual. Create own folders, copy data here, just do your usual work.

    Any other questions?
