Hi All,
After installing 7 32bit over Vista, 250GB HDD, 7 does now not recognise,patition3 which was "ACERDATA-D" 107GB + "ACER-C" O/S 111GB.
Windows tools allow me to do nothing,however i have found a program that can find and mount "non visible Partitions"
I have tried formating this Partition,but its write protected? (tried to un write?)
Also how can i make this Part visible to windows.

I've just realised that i have to Mount this partition? as the 2 others also show,10GB recovery & 3GB allocated

Regards Snokey

This is one of the problems that can occur when you do an upgrade of an OS vs a clean install. It's just the nature of the beast. Knowing that you have a 250 GB HDD, does it still show up as C: 250 GB HDD with the upgrade? Have you gone into disk management and tried to partition the drive? Can you take a screen shot and post what is shows in disk management?

Hello Bassfisher,

this is a grab from a program called "Find and Mount", but partition unmounts on re-boot

Hope this helps
Thanks
