I have a PC with a 1.2 GB HDD as one partition C: with a compressed drive H:.   I have just added a 4.2 GB HDD which I want to partition as 8 x 500 MB partitions.
Using fdisk I can set partitions for D:, E:, F:, G:, but the next one overlays H: on my original disk.   Can you tell me how I can avoid this problem.

Thanks in advance John

What I would do uncompress the drive  and then use fdisk to partition the drive. A compressed drive is not a good thing to have.

renaming the host will not help as it is the compressed drive which is the problem.   I cannot decompress as I havent the space and both the compressed drive and the host drive are required to run the system.   I will have to do a major amount of file shifting and system configuration to change either of the existing drives before I get the new disk up and running.
Any more suggestions ?
