03-30-2004, 20:59
OK computer hooahs...my most awsome bride bought me the latest and greatest Sony VAIO...3+ GHZ, dvd writer, watch and record cable tv the whole shabang...
PROBLEM: has an 80 GB hard drive...partitioned into 15 mb for programs and operating system, and the rest for audio / video.
Thing is, my 15 GB is full and the rest is virtually empty save for about 3 GB of music and 5 of video
I just bought Microsoft Office 2003 and Adobe Photoshop CS and can't install the silly things. Same with some games I purchased.
Tried installing them under other than "C drive programs"...(Partition "D") and nothing will run.

Any help would be appreciated.

2 Options:

Preserve the data option - there's an application called partitian magic that will allow expand your partitian without loosing data. Most of the time. I might have that at work where I keep all my 'demo' software. I'll check if you like.

Option 2 - Blow the whole thing away and do it right, 1 partitian, reload everything.

Sony has weird ideas about how people should use their equipment, never could figure out why they did it that way.

Partition Magic should do the trick for you

Nice of them to decide how you'll use your PC

If you need more help give a shout

You got the notebook with you? I can do it when you are here in a couple of days. Takes not much time at all.
