    m,
    Hello... If your using "Disk Management" and your running ....you wont be able to remove it, if it's now part of your OS... Could you post a Screen Shot of this ? Regards Fred

    You could always try a 3rd party partitioning app such as Partition Wizard or EaseUS Partition Magic to eliminate the partition.

    The easiest way is to do a Prt Sc of screen, then paste into Paint. In Paint you can crop it or highlight parts, etc. then save to desktop as a .jpg. Now use the indicated icon on taskbar to post a link:

    ScreenShot.jpg

    When you select the icon just follow the on screen instructions. The .jpg files will show as actual attachments, .png will not.

    qaz,
    If it's a "Data" partition windows might have set up a now "Unallocated" small partition (<10MB ) when you formatted the HD ....If this is the case , it's of no consequence ...Just leave it be. Regards Fred

    i think im loosing you

    i formatted nothing and windows didn't set anything up. the disk imaging software made it and called it a capsule to safeguard the image it made

    it is 6.49 gb and unallocated. the rest of disk is 226gb

    does that help as i dont think i have paint

    MS Paint is on all versions of Windows. It's usually in All Programs, Accessories I think in XP.

    Off topic I know, but I've uploaded many screenshots in PNG format and there's never been a problem with them appearing. Here's a screenshot of them all which is also in PNG format.

    png_attachments.pn.png

    In addition, you can install a handy little tool called MWSnap to take screenshots in Windows XP from here: http://www.mirekw.com/winfreeware/mwsnap.html

    To take a screenshot with MWSnap, click the link called "Any rect. angle" and then click the "Snap any area" button. Draw a box around the image you want to cut and then click twice on the right hand corner. It will save automatically in PNG format. By default, it will be called "Noname". Just change that to whatever you want to call it and save it somewhere.

    If you're using Windows Vista or 7, use the "Snipping Tool" instead. When you launch that, the screen will turn pale grey. Draw a box around the object in the same way and it will change into normal colors. No need to double click: just release the mouse button. You'll find it by typing "Snipping Tool" in the Search box at the bottom. I suggest right clicking the link and choosing "Pin to Start Menu", or "Pin to Taskbar" so that you've always got it handy.

    No need to bother wih "Paint" these days other than for editing.
