    I think you've got it right there Phish. PC manufacturers lately do not supply a recovery disc but instead have a "hidden" image on your hard drive to restore your system to the state when you first bought it.

    ok not with that out of the way can you fdisk it and make one big drive if you will change the os for good. Or does it have some other company crap that needs to be there...because I reformatted my friends drive and did not del this HP partition because I didn't want to screw anything up

    hello
    open windows explorer
    goto tools/folder options/view

    select show hidden files and folders
    uncheck hide protected operating system files

    you should find your missing space


    now get this program to see whats using all that space
