I'm fixing up a laptop that was in bad shape. I'll spare you the gory details of the crap I've already fixed. Here's the wall I'm hitting up against. The person before had partitioned the hard drive into to logical drives, a 150 gig one and a 129 gig one. I was using EASeus Partition Manager to merge the two partitions back together when the computer overheated and restarted against my will. Now the 129 gig partition is no longer there. Instead, it's unused space on the drive. The feature to reclaim it as a partition is greyed out in EASeus. I also looked in Windows 7's native utility and can't find a way to get that 129 gig back. I also booted to a Win 7 install disk to see if it's possible to format that 129 gig and thus make it a partition, but had no luck. The goal is to get that 129 gig back as part of the C drive. If it has to be a separate logical drive first, that's fine. I also have Partition Commander 11 portable, but couldn't find any a command to reclaim that space. Is Partition Magic still around? Any ideas?
