Hi all. Sorry to waste your time like this but I must seek answers.
I switched out a 4GB HD for a 20 GB HD on an older mobo for my kid this winter. Unfortunately, I forgot to have the system detect the new HD before I formatted it. I am now left with a 20G HD which sees itself as 4G from the formatting the system gave it. Is there any way that I can correct this problem on the current machine, or will I have to reformat it on my other, newer, (last year I put it together... a good Barebones,) system? If I have to do it on my own system, can you walk me through the steps? I am an old, (30,) software pirate, not a hacker until you teach me...
I appreciate All help and would give anyone whatever knowledge I have, were the situation reversed.
I thank in advance anyone who can help me with this. I wanna get an A+ cert, to start a home business, and have been trying to expand my personal knowledge base, but I have to learn much more before I can do so.
Thanks and massive props to all who assist me in this matter. You will not be soon forgotten.
Just an EDITORIAL,
I grew up on Apple- and Atari-Basic, back in the land of Reagan. Computers were so slow for speed then, but the games were good. The things that are happening in the computer world today are amazing. I believe the future is swiftly approaching. I have seen it blow away my conceptions of what is achievable. The potential is unlimited. If you have a dream you should follow it, Unless it is a virus or other hardcore hack! To all good hackers, make the add-on, provide the unsolicited feature. F*** the corporate Internet.
Do me a favor though, folks. Be responsible with your hackings. Don't be malicious. We have enough terrorist workings in place to tie us up for the next hundred years. If you want to find ways to trash systems, (I know it can be tempting,) find responses for it too, and give the software manufacturers the ways and means to counter it.
We can minimize the risks we face.
Let's take care of each other instead of going for each other's throats.
It can be done.
