I misused Partition Magic 8.0 and want my hard drive back.
Posted on 2004-08-07
I have a 120GB hard drive currently running Win2000 fine. It boots consistently and operates fine as far as I can tell. However, under "mycomputer", there are partitions showing I don't want that are fragments left from my escapades with Partition Magic. None of them allow "delete" from "mycomputer" menus. I have loaded PM8 and it does not show these partitions at all, only the single, primary partition I've got Win2000 on currently. It shows this partition as "Bad" I do have another hard drive on the system that is currently blank. I have no data to risk and would simply like to know if there is a absolute disk format utility that will erase all this partition info on the drive in question. So far I have reformatted this drive during the Win2000 install but still see these partitions showing up in "mycomputer".
