2GB became 1.008GB
This is not linux related but I don't know where to turn to so here goes. I have some HDD that is so bad sectored until can't install linux, so I found a "FBDISK" software that review to be able to fixed bad sector. After scanning for awhile for bad sectors, it show the optimized partition slices where the "good" sector are use. Kinda cool at first but after I save. I saw only 504MB of available disk space, I thought it was no that serious because a simple fdisk could fix it but even the fdisk, the disk manager was unable to see the actual HDD size ( 2.1GB )
I found then another piece of app called "Disk Genius" that was able to see 1.008GB of the HDD. Problem is how do I ever get back the actual 2.1GB ? My guess is that the "FBDISK" app reprogrammed the read head to start from different place so the HDD show smaller size. Hopefully someone here is good at bad or weird things like this.
2.1GB would be nice for linux practice Thanks for your time and your help is always welcome :P
