Hi all my friends, i have some questions for you
I have 2 WD Caviar RE2 400GB drives, configured in mirroring under Nvidia SATA raid controller. The RAID1 drive is based on an unique 400GB partition formatted in NTFS, clusters standard, primary and bootable partition.
I want to split it in 2 partitions, the primary/bootable one and a logical partition; i will use Acronis Disk Director Suite. When i use Acronis, it report a 372.6GB partition, and an unallocated 7844MB partition, but i'm sure i had never created this little partition: every time i had installed WinXP, i had used the entire size of the disk, no partitioning.
FYI, i have another disk (a Seagate 7200.8, 200GB, unique NTFS partition, non-raid of course), and this one have an unallocated 7844MB partition, so, wtf? Where are they coming from? Is it a feature of the nvidia raid? Is it an hidden feature of windows? Or what?
The disk management under Administrative Tools in WinXP does not report those unallocated partitions, and i don't want to proceed with split&resize partitions if i don't know what's wrong
