I just upgraded my 120g hdd to a 250g hdd. I used evox to format my new hdd by creating a boot disk. Enabled LB support and ftp everything from my 120g to the 250g. Now I'm starting to wonder if I should of hdprepared the 250g hdd. Has anyone else used evox boot disk to format their 137+ hdd, if not what should I of used? Sofar everything is working, I just hope my data doesn't start to get corrupted. Please tell me that I don't have to start over. Thanks....

Well I just used F: so that partition is about 240g the other particions C,E,X,Y,Z are standard. So what would you format a 350g hard drive with?

I usually format all my new hdd's with slayers it's alot easier and a 350gb hdd I would split the space between F and G drives so that I would not get data corruption biggrin.gif

So do you think a 240g partition is a bit too large? Should I too have split it up and used a G: partion?
