How to fix an unallocated hard disk?





lovescience
The hard disk with data on it appears to be unallocated.

What may make a hard disk become unallocated?

Do you know how to fix an unallocated hard disk?
Peterssidan
I guess unallocated means the memory does not belong any disk partition. You can use some partition tool to like GParted to make the memory part of a partition. You might have to create a new partition if no partition exists. I think Windows 7 has a build in partition tool. I also know that it's possible if you boot from a Windows XP CD.

Thanks!

I found it was because I installed several disk cleaning software, the windows couldn't find the disk.

Uninstalled the software fixed it!

what software is that?

CCleaner and registry cleaner.

Here is a link to a message about it

like the guy says please don’t mess with the registry—your computer may fail to bootup—here more cleaners is not necessary good as they conflict with each other
please remove “registry cleaner”
use only “CCleaner” which is reliable.
