sqeezing extra 7 gigs.
sqeezing extra 7 gigs. –
i have a hitatchi 120 (right on the hdd is says its 122 gigs) hdd, i just bought, anyways, i noticed after hdadvanced formated it it only gave me 115 gigs of storage, i was wondering can i sqeeze the extra gigage out of it, i am hoping to get the extra 7 gigs that i lost in the format back. has anyone else had this problem. i payed for 120 gigs now i want it not 115. thanks for your help.
No, unfortunatlely your drive needs that much for your partition table. less with smaller drives and more for larger drives. my 200gb is 189gb.
thats shitty, i did not know that. thanks for the quick responce.
did you delete these? with the older version of hdl_dump you may, and they can free up about 2gb
partition table isnt THAT big

what svansk said.
u guys need to learn a bit about bytes and kilobytes etc before assuming you lost 7 gigs.
there is alot of wastage even after the 1000/1024 byte rule.. there are a lot of partitions there that you don't see which take up space..
so what about using for winhiip users what all partitions can we delete say though dms format tool
i am curious too to know why some are saying we can delete most partitions created by hdloader.. what do they do anyway and why do we need them if we can delete them?
someone even mentionned when using winhiip to format you drive that we can delete all but _mbr and HDLoader Settings. So what are these :
- net 128MB
and do I really need them if #1 I intend to never use hdloader to install a game directly and #2 my HDloader loads from my memory or store partition using the exploit.
