I have an ACER computer, and me being stupid and Curry’s not knowing anything about ACER computers, or just wanting me to buy and go away with a complete piece of shite, failed to tell me that they partition their hard drives.
So when I read up on it and asked a few pals about deleting partitions, and realised that it’s actually quite risky, I was angry because the first partition is full and there’s only so many times I can defrag before there is just nothing left to clean up.
So here’s what I’ve just discovered, I was searching the control panel for the defrag and I saw a bit that said create and format partitions, so I thought ‘I’ll check this out’
Now I’m taking a guess here, but when I right clicked the 2nd partition it said mark as active, so I am guessing I can make that one active and that’s me I can use that side, right?! That’s what it seems like to me. So I clicked it and it said to make this whatever active it needs to have an OS installed in it, if it doesn’t it won’t work.
I’m taking it that this is the risk in deleting partitions, that if the 2nd part doesn’t have an OS it can’t work properly as a fully functioning hard drive? I don’t know, laugh if you want, whatever.
Aye anyway, how do I know if it has an OS on it so I can start using it? And I take it if I start using it without any problems then it won’t have any programs or music etc that I have while using the 1st part?
So yeah, if you could help me that would be great and I will reward you with a big thank you and a smile :)
