I have added a new large hard drive and need to increase the number of allowable logical drives.


This question was answered on February 6, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

This should be easy, use a DOS utility like FDisk or a Windows application Partition Magic to repartition the hard drive (All data might be lost on the drive you are partitioning, back up all important files).

I don't remember the exact steps in FDisk, but you can get a great tutorial here: http://fdisk.radified.com/ and a technical (read: boring) MS tutorial here: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=KB;en-us;q255867

Here is a free partitioning tool you can get (I didn't try it yet, but it's free!): http://download.com.com/3302-2248-914828.html

Hope this helps.
