I got this old laptop which wasn't functioning, so I decided to use its 500gb hard disk as external hard disk for my computer.

But in my computer the harddisk is divided into 2 partitions 39gb and 54gb and there is no unallocated space showing up in disk management .

If anyone could help me out with this, I would be very happy!

OS: Win 7 professional.

Screenshot: enter image description here And BTW I even used DIskpart command in Cmd and even it showed no unallocated size.

  • delete those partitions and format the disk, see if size is correct now. – Moab Jan 19 at 14:58

    A screenshot of the disk management window will be useful. Please edit the question and add it. Due to your low reputation the site won't show the image directly, it will be a link. Don't worry, someone with enough reputation will review and embed it. – Kamil Maciorowski Jan 19 at 15:08
  • I have edited the question to include a screenshot. – Leonard Shelby Jan 27 at 11:12
