Hidden partition on HDD Fdisk cannot see it, how can i remove it?
Posted on 2004-11-03
Hello there, I have on my 40GB HDD installed Windows XP after installing XP, rebooted and used a boot disk for a program called Firstware by Phoenix technologies, this is a program to create an image of the C: drive and hide it away in an area of the HDD, and can only be accessed at a later date to do a system restore if anything happens to the C drive.
The problem I have is the first test of this phoenix first ware didnt go to plan, and i need to remove the hidden partition, and get the HDD back to a 40GB (Currently reported as a 32GB) so I can start again from a fresh. I cannot do anything with Phoenix first ware untill this hidden partition is removed.
Many thanks in advance for all the help out there.
