I have a new asus windows 7 laptop. Using the "AI Recovery" tool, I deleted the 8 gig windows recovery partition.
Now the Disk Management utility is showing my disk to be 111.79 GB rather than the 119.24 it was before. I seem to have lost the space that the recovery partition was taking up, rather than having it returned to use.
I'd like my 8 GB back, it's only a 128 GB disk.
--Edit-- Maybe it's not a 128 GB disk, maybe it's a 120 GB disk. I was comparing it against an identical laptop, except the HDDs are different. One is an ADATA XM11 128GB (114472MB) and the other is a SanDisk SSD U100 (122103MB). 8GB difference. Perhaps I didn't have as much space as I thought. Anyone with an XM11 want to tell me how many MB it's got in it. ADATA aren't telling.
