\015 My laptop has a hard drive of 100 GB ... now when i tried to check out my C drive i found it saying that the total capacity is 24 GB ... is this a bad sector or a virus and what should i do??note: this Laptop is not new i've worked with it more than 2 years but i've recently re-installed windows\015

Answers :

Have you ever install any other operating system like Linux or Mac.Boot computer from windows disk , Delete all partitions , Forma using NTFS file system, Reinstall windows,Now check the capacity of hard drive , It'll be fixed
What the re-installation did was partition the HD with the small (24GB) partition and most likely left the rest of the disk un-partitioned. If you are familiar with Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Computer Management / Storage / Disk Management, you may be able to add a second partition to the present one in the laptop. If you see an open area that doesn't appear to have a partition this is what occurred. Right click the "C-drive" line and add a partition.
