    Hi all..

    Prev i have asked our members on how to merge my OS Partition with another partition and got some sugg in usin Partition Magic to achieve my idea..

    sterday i started the process and after an hour in our area thr was a power failure and my system came to a halt. It shutdowned.

    Today mornin i switched on my sys and can c only 2 drives in place..

    actually i had 5 partitions and can c only 3 partitions..

    My OS partition is intact and another drive is intact in place.. the third drive is showin but if i try to open it its askin to format the drive..

    I went to disk management and there it shows my another partition but it says its unknown partition..

    but it shows the size as 19 GB and free space is 1 GB etc..

    but its not shown in MY COMPUTER..

    Is thr anyway to retrieve the unknown partition drive..

    Please help me out..

    TIA

    dont try disc management..
    infact give it a try with partition magic once again...
    merge all the partitions except c:\
    and when merging is complete u can divide it according to ur needs..

    dats what iam telling u...merge it with any drive....
    say for eg u have data available in d:\ which is shown in partition magic but not in my computer,then simply merge it with c:\
    in this case all the contents of d: will go into a newly created folder in c:\ ...
    give it a try ....

    I think i will xplain my partitions first..

    I have a 80 GB HDD and hv partitioned it into 5 partitions..

    5 GB 4 OS C:, 20GB 4 Appz D:, 20 GB 4 Moviez E:, 30 GB 4 Music F: and Vids and 5GB 4 Games G:..

    Since i had only 5GB 4 OS it used to get full when i use Adobe and other Huge Appz.. So i tought of emptyin G: drive and merge it with C:

    But when doin the process thr was a power failure and when i turned on again i culd c only C: Drive, E: drive and F: Drive.

    When i accessed F: drive its askin to format..

    But when i used Partition Magic the D: Drive shows as a Unknown partition..

    I Now i hv formatted F: and its accessible now..

    I tried to merge the Unknown Partition and E: drive

    But it is not showin me options to select the Unknown Partition.. instead it shows only the E: and F: drives..

    In the Merge Options i cannot use the Unknown Partition..

    Wat els can i do..

    u really are in a mess rite now..
    according to u,u cant merge or infact do anything with unknown partition...rite??
    and d:\ is shown as unknown...
    so the only step left is to format the unknown drive.. i really have not faced such an issue..
    so either wait for sumone to help u out or else give it a try and format the drive...
