Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

This acer aspire 3680 has 2 separate hard drives, one computer the other data.(each a little over 30 gigs) is there a way to utilize both sides for storage? i have run out of room very fast because of itunes and pics. is there an solution?


Answers :

It sounds as if you have a system partition and a data partition on one hard drive. The one that you can not access is your restore partition and is needed to restore the system should it become corrupted.\012
\012You can format the restore drive and us it, but it will leave you without a restore option. It would be best to buy an inexpensive external hard drive. 1TB external drives are dropping in price and will increase your storage capacity 1,024GB.
