Is the PC working fine now ? Have you got the 10 GBs added to C: ?

@AddRam Yes, I do. It says 594gb instead of 584gb, an extra 10gb.

@Murd3rd Continuing from my previous post, I just wish I had a recovery cd/partition, because there are some things you can't get on their support website.

*just because i kinda wanna know* what kind of things? i havent had any problems getting anything to work on my laptop(except my webcam but that isnt a software fault, it has internal wire failure). if i cant find it on the Toshiba site, then Windows update probably has the answer...

You can always order recovery discs from the manufacturer.

Ya but he wants them, $30 is nothing. Save a $1 a day for a month.

Better to clean reinstall when the time comes anyway, without the factory bloatware which corrupts and throttles Win7.

Here are steps to get a perfect clean reinstall of factory OEM: Reinstalling Windows 7

But he wants the factory bloatware, I too was gonna suggest a clean install but he has no install media.

unallocated hard drive space
I have a 5610Z Acer Aspire with Windows 7 (32 bit). I pulled a very boneheaded move getting to upgrade from Vista. I deleted my D:drive (50 G). I back up to a 500 G external hard drive. Is there a way to add the 59G to C:drive where I could use the space. Thanks Brightlight864:o
